1. Operating Results for November 2013
THAI’s Board of Directors acknowledged the Company’s operating performance for November 2013. Compared to the same month in 2012, the Company’s average Cabin Factor was 71.1 percent, which is lower than the same month last year with an average of 76.7 percent, primarily due to the new Chinese tourism law that affected overseas tour prices as well as the political rallies in Thailand. During this month, passengers carried totaled 1.76 million, a 5.9 percent decrease from 1.87 million carried last year. Revenue Passenger-Kilometer (RPK) decreased 3.3 percent despite new aircraft deliveries, increasing the Available Seat-Kilometer (ASK) by 4.4 percent. THAI Smile had an average Cabin Factor of 67.7 percent, which is lower than last year’s average of 84.1 percent, which is a result from domestic and international route expansion.
Performance of the Cargo and Commercial Mail operations improved and reported higher Revenue Freight Ton-Kilometer (RFTK) of 2.9 percent with improvements coming from almost every route due to pricing strategy adjustment. Available Dead Load Ton-Kilometers (ADTK) increased by 1.4 percent compared to the same period last year. As a result, the combined Freight Load Factor for aircraft belly and freighter averaged 56.3 percent, which was higher than the 55.5 percent achieved last year.
