Lufthansa loads dip in October

The Lufthansa Group experienced a significant drop in load factors on routes to and from Asia Pacific in October 2011. The German airline’s average cabin load factors dived 6.7 percentage points last month to 81.4%, as a 3.3% rise in passenger demand failed to keep pace with the airline’s 11.7% increase in available seat capacity. In total, the group’s airlines – Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and bmi – carried 549,000 passengers on Asian routes last month.

Year-to-date, Lufthansa Group has carried 5.25 million passengers to and from Asia Pacific, 8.1% up year-on-year, with load factors averaging 81.3% – 4.3 point down on the same period in 2010.
