Its Not All Bad News - Easyjet

Fri Oct 05, 2001 6:55 pm

Easyjet have just reported their September 2001 passenger carryings were 3% down on August 2001, but they were 27% up on a year ago - September 2000.

Someone seems to be weathering the storm quite well.

They had a seat sale a couple of weeks ago which went very well by all accounts-but it was for travel from 15 October onwards so their October figures will be interesting to see when compared with the majors.

Could their success during September be related to how much of their traffic is derived from business users and how much is from leisure travellers who book well in advance?

Maybe... Of course, the other thing that they haven't admitted to is what percentage capacity increase they had between last September and this September. They've certainly acquired a few more 737s and haven't retired any, so whilst their traffic figures may be up their load factor might not show quite so rosy a picture.

Their load factors compared with last year were almost identical (about 83%).

The bit easyJet appear to have omitted:

The increase in numbers is down to the extra flights and aircraft flown in September 2001 when compared to September 2000.

David/MAN: 293 and counting
