26 December 2013

Highlights

Aeroflot standalone

  • Aeroflot (the “Company”) passenger traffic reached 1.7 million passengers in November 2013, up 17.8% vs. November 2012.  This brought the Company’s total passenger traffic for 11M 2013 to 19.3 million, up 18.5% year-on-year;
  • Passenger turnover growth accelerated in November 2013, up 14.8% year-on-year to 4.7 billion revenue passenger kilometres, while growth for the 11M period of 2013 was up 19.7% compared to 11M 2012;
  • Passenger load factor in November 2013 remained in line with levels in November 2012 and amounted to 75.8%;
  • Aeroflot has added new aircraft to its fleet in 2013, including eight Airbus A320, three Airbus A321, two Boeing 737-800 and four Boeing 777, which also contributed to an increase in capacity of 14.5% in November 2013 vs. November 2012. 

Aeroflot Group:

  • Aeroflot Group’s (the “Group”) passenger traffic for November 2013 was 2.4 million passengers, up 12.6% from November 2012; the Group’s total passenger traffic for 11M 2013 reached 29.1 million, up 14.3% year-on-year;
  • The Group’s passenger turnover growth in November 2013 was 6.4% year-on-year, reaching 6.4 billion revenue passenger kilometres for the month, and passenger turnover was up 14.9% year-on-year for the 11M period;
  • Aeroflot Group’s passenger load factor declined slightly in November 2013 to 75.6%, down 0.4 pp from November 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 22.6% decline in tonnes of cargo carried in November 2013 from November 2012;
