Wed Aug 16, 2006 7:09 pm

During the month of June, the Company gained 32, 2% of the market share, creating a new record for Spanair and consolidating the airline as the chosen alternative by the Spanish air transport users.

Madrid, the 14th of August 2006,- During June this year, Spanair has flown a total of 135.285 passengers on its Barcelona - Madrid route, resulting in a growth of 14% compared to June 2005, and superior to that of 4% reached by the Aviation sector.

The Company has increased its capacity by 12%, and its load factor by 2.2 percentage points, reaching 75,1% with respect to last year.

The highest load factor figures, were registered on Fridays, at 81,6%, resulting in an average of 4.500 flown passengers per day. On the other hand, this average increases to 5.200 per day, when you take into account the passengers flown on week days, from Monday to Friday.

"We are very satisfied with the significant number of passengers that have flown on our Barcelona - Madrid route, during the month of June this year, resulting in a market share for Spanair of 32,2%, the highest registered on this route", states Lars Nygaard, CEO of Spanair, also adding, "Not forgetting the 135.285 users that have chosen us, endorsing our product as a good option for quality and service".

So this is only about BCN-MAD, if I understand it correctly. Nice, but rather selective. What is the overall situation on the domestic market ?

I am expecting this JK's market share on domestic flights to increase further in the future given the intended withdrawal of IB from most of its BCN routes.

Hmmm....didn't realise there were that many people who hadn't flown on Iberia yet...
Thanks

Heathrow has been described as the only building site to have its own airport.

Am I reading this right - if 46 daily flights accounts for a mere 32.2% of the PAX, then there must be somewhere in the region of 70 flight each way on the route daily - in the region of 20,000 passengers - incredible numbers if I'm interpreting this correctly. I know I'm not allowing for load factors so figures are exaggerated.
