recovery continued during December with a 2.8% year-on-year increase in
passenger traffic.

Overall load
factors improved by two percentage points to 66% on the back of a capacity
reduction of 0.9%.

are still being adversely affected. Despite a 3.3% increase in economy
passengers, premium traffic reduced by 1%.

Rod Eddington warned trading conditions remain challenging in the face of a
