AC Sets 1-Day Record, Carries Nearly 1 Million Pax Over Holiday
Canada transported close to one million customers throughout the six-day Canada Day holiday period, during which it achieved a single-day record for passengers carried.
On 29JUNE, Air Canada welcomed aboard 166,850 customers, a record for the carrier, and from 29JUN to 4JUL over 930,000 customers took flight with AC.
"As Canadians celebrated our country's 150th birthday, Air Canada was hard at work safely transporting record numbers of customers to their destinations,” said Calin Rovinescu, President and CEO.
Rovinescu also commented on a Q2 that he says will exceed average analyst expectations.
"Our record for passengers carried caps an excellent second quarter during which our EBITDAR, driven by higher revenue and lower than projected fuel costs, is expected to significantly exceed the current average analyst consensus estimate of approximately $475 million.”
