Aeroflot announces traffic statistics for October and 10M 2013

Highlights

Aeroflot standalone

  • Aeroflot (the “Company”) passenger traffic reached 1.9 million passengers in October 2013, up 20.5% vs. October 2012.  This brought the Company’s total passenger traffic for 10M 2013 to 17.6 million, up 18.6% year-on-year;
  • Passenger turnover growth accelerated in October 2013, up 21.0% year-on-year to 5.4 billion revenue passenger kilometres, compared to 20.2% year-on-year for the 10M period;
  • Capacity grew at a faster rate than turnover in October 2013, driven by the addition of new routes during the year. Passenger load factor in October 2013 was almost unchanged at 79.3% compared to October 2012;
  • Aeroflot has added new aircraft to its fleet in 2013, including seven Airbus A320, three Airbus A321, two Boeing 737-800 and four Boeing 777, which also contributed to an increase in capacity of 21.1% in October 2013 vs. October 2012. 

Aeroflot Group:

  • Aeroflot Group’s (the “Group”) passenger traffic for October 2013 was 2.7 million passengers, up 13.1% from October 2012; the Group’s total passenger traffic for 10M 2013 reached 26.7 million, up 14.5% year-on-year;
  • The Group’s passenger turnover growth in October 2013 was 11.2% year-on-year, reaching 7.3 billion revenue passenger kilometres for the month, and passenger turnover was up 15.7% year-on-year for the 10M period;
  • Aeroflot Group’s passenger load factor also declined slightly in October 2013 to 77.2%, down 1.0 pp from October 2012. This was due to capacity additions at Group subsidiaries Orenair and Rossiya outstripping growth in passenger turnover.

Other highlights:

  • Aeroflot suspended operations of its cargo plane fleet in 2013, switching to belly cargo operations.  This was the main factor driving the 17.5% decline in tonnes of cargo carried in October 2013 from October 2012;
