Considerable Surge in number of Passengers Recorded by Qantas for September
In a development which is being viewed as a positive sign, Australia's Qantas has seen a significant rise in the number of passengers for the month for September. According to official figures released, the airline booked as many as 3.4 million passengers during September this year, which is 7% more than the travelers booked for the same period last year.
Despite the fact that the number of passengers on the carrier's international services fell by 20.8% compared to last year, likely to be a direct result of a 13.2% cut in capacity, the rise in total number of travels is being viewed by analysts and economists as another sign of the country's economy going strong.
"The strong economy cabin volume relative to premium cabin performance has accentuated the yield deterioration", shared the airline in an issued statement.
The revenue seat factor figures reported by the airline have also seen a nearly 4 percentage points rise, to 83.7%. Higher figures have been reported for the quarter as well.
