Aer Lingus reports increase in passengers for August

For Aer Lingus, the month of August this year has been remarkable. Aer Lingus has been upbeat on its performance, and said that the total number of passengers carried for August 2013 showed a 0.9 percent increase to 1,126,000.

Aer Lingus, while providing the details, said that its long-haul flights reported an increase of 17.5 percent in the passenger numbers to 121,000. However, the passenger numbers on its short haul service slightly declined to 0.8 percent to 1,005,000. The airline’s load factor (seats filled per flight) also dropped by 0.7 points to 86.6 percent this August.
