Flyr had a total of 30,042 guests traveling to 13 destinations in January. Flyr’s total production was adjusted in line with the reduced demand for airline travel caused by the increase in the spread of Omicron and the restrictions implemented by the government in December.
We continue the report week from the Scandinavian airlines with a look at the airline Flyr.
Flyr, like other airlines, reached its peak in October and has since then, constantly lost passengers. However, not to other competitors, but with the new Omicron outbreak and new restrictions.
” The recommendation of a home office and the newly implemented social restrictions immediately affected the aviation industry and led to a substantial reduction in customer bookings, in particular for January. Considering this situation, we are very satisfied with the load factor we achieved during the month ”, says Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid, CEO of Flyr.
With an average of only 3 out of 5 aircraft in service, Flyr reduced its capacity, which has an impact on its available capacity, measured in ASK (Available Seat Kilometers).
ASK: 53.5 Million, compared to 99.4 Million in December. Load factor: 53.7%, compared to 47.1% in December.
At the same time, we see that the reduction in capacity meant a fairly large step in the load factor, which is in the right direction.
With lifted restrictions for Norway and an upcoming winter holiday, maybe February will be the month that Flyr breaks the previous record from October? Flyr also has several destinations in the Alps this season, something that usually attracts travelers from Norway.
