Budget airline Philippines Air Asia posted a full-year profit for the first time in 2017 as passenger volume increased by a third on added aircraft capacity
Airlines are also upscaling to bigger narrow-body jets, and others have pursued "densification," in which aircraft capacity
is increased either through boosting the proportion of economy berths or removing bulkheads, moving toilets and adding thinner seats to create room for extra passengers.
In addition to these changes, Air New Zealand is focused on securing replacement aircraft capacity
Airline considerations include the level of demand and key economic indicators of a region; the likely yield; competition from other airports; if economies of scale can be achieved; and there has to be new available aircraft capacity
to operate or the case has to be made why they should move capacity from one airport to another.
Freighter aircraft capacity
is benchmarked against forecast demand for air cargo and the proportion of the total that is expected to be transported on dedicated cargo aircraft.
To avoid inconveniencing our customers, we had already factored in the reduced aircraft capacity
, while scheduling our flights.
Continuously meeting seasons' demands, RJ periodically revises its route network in order to offer further flexibility, while matching aircraft capacity
and flight frequency to destinations.
Particularly interesting was the trade-off between armor and aircraft capacity
This first flight has a load factor of 161 passengers per direction (away and return) for an aircraft capacity
of 162 seats.
Carrying 20 per cent more is a serious consideration as we would have to put extra aircraft capacity
Capacity is available to Liverpool, but we have 180 airports across Europe competing for that aircraft capacity
Aircraft movements declined by two percent to 472,692 takeoffs and landings compared to last year, due to consolidation measures of the airlines, coupled with higher aircraft capacity
utilization, as well as the deployment of larger planes.
