Already strong performance seems to be increasing even more!
Total pax up 5% in April yielding YTD up 4.4%
Most amazing to me is movements are really strong! Up 6.5% in April and YTD up 4.6%. That seems to be coming primarily from domestic movements up 7% in April and up 4.9% YTD.
I imagine this summer will only bring even higher increases!
Even more impressive is that movements are up even with strong upguaging: the 4.9% YTD includes a 7% growth in air carrier and a -5% shrink of commuter ops. I'm assuming commuter refers to the regional aircraft?
The international is still a bit of a mystery to me: -4% shrink in ops and +10% growth in passengers means loads must be *way* up. This either means in the next year, we should expect to see more new route announcements, or that T5 really is so congested that airlines haven't been able to add capacity like they normally would with massive passenger growth like that...
Yes, the commuter is regional. As far as I remember- its broken down by operator (ie Skywest, Gojet, etc). Its been a while since I have seen the categorization.
International is prob loads. The airline breakdown could provide clarity to answer that.
I also want to point out that in the 3-5 months after a new carrier is added to ORD, the reports are not accurate in terms of their categorization. I remember them reporting Eva as a Cargo airline for a while.
Really wish I had the airline detail still.
