Airline Capacity Continues To Stabilize

One year on since the world's airlines began to curb their seat capacity in the face of global economic pressures, the cutbacks are starting to stabilize with just over 315 million seats on offer this month, a drop of just one percent over July 2008 levels, reports aviation data business OAG.

The world's airlines have scheduled a total of 2.55 million flights for July 2009, down by 3 percent compared with the same month last year, with a drop in capacity of 3.3 million fewer seats on offer to travelers around the globe. Last month, the year-on-year global frequency and capacity figures were down by 4 percent and 2 percent respectively.
