US Airways Group, Inc. Reports March Traffic Results

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--US Airways Group, Inc. (NYSE: LCC) today reported March and year-to-date 2009 traffic results. Mainline revenue passenger miles (RPMs) for the month were 4.9 billion, down 8.9 percent versus March 2008. Capacity was 6.0 billion available seat miles (ASMs), down 6.1 percent versus March 2008. Passenger load factor for the month of March was 81.9 percent, down 2.6 points versus March 2008.

US Airways President Scott Kirby said, "Our March traffic results reflect the Easter holiday shift from March in 2008 to April in 2009 as well as a reduction in travel that we, like the rest of the industry, experienced during the month. Both of these factors contributed to a decrease in consolidated (mainline and Express) passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) of approximately 17 to 19 percent versus the same period last year. However, our a la carte revenue initiatives introduced in 2008 continue to offset some of this weakness as our total revenue per available seat mile on a year-over-year basis declined between 13 and 15 percent."

For the month of March, US Airways’ preliminary on-time performance as reported to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) was 79.6 percent with a completion factor of 98.1 percent.

The following summarizes US Airways Group’s traffic results for the month and year-to-date consisting of mainline operated flights as well as US Airways Express flights operated by wholly owned subsidiaries PSA Airlines and Piedmont Airlines.
