Aer Lingus August Load Factor 86.1 Per Cent

Long-haul booked load factor was 89.7%, a decrease of 0.2 points on August 2010, with capacity decreasing by 4.0% as a result of Hurricane Irene at the end of the month.

Total booked passenger numbers in August 2011 were 1,030,000, an increase of 1.8% compared to August 2010. Short-haul booked passengers were 935,000, a 2.4% increase on August 2010, while long-haul booked passengers were 95,000, a 4.0% decrease on August 2010.
