During August, cargo traffic rose 9.9% as capacity increased 11.0%. As a consequence, the cargo load factor decreased 0.7 points to 67.8%. Traffic and capacity grew due to the arrival of three new Boeing 767F freighters between November 2010 and January 2011.

During August, 86.2% of the Company’s total flights left on time based on a fifteen-minute standard (all departures leaving within fifteen minutes of the scheduled departure time are considered as “on-time”). This represented an increase of 0.6 points compared to August 2010.
