Australian domestic capacity increases impacting load factors for Jun-2017

Australia’s Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics released its domestic aviation activity report for Jun-2017 highlighting a 1.7% increase year-on-year equalling 4.90 million passengers. According to BITRE, available seat kilometres (ASKs), increased by 0.6% year-on-year to a total of 7.05 billion. The slight increase didn’t quite meet demand and impacted load factors which decreased from 77.6% in Jun-2016 to 77.4% in Jun-2017.
