WestJet Airlines signalled that the travel market remains strong, even though its November load factor fell from last year's record as its overall capacity grew faster than passenger traffic.
The Calgary-based airline's planes flew 79.7 per cent full in the month, down 2.9 points from the same month last year, but up from 79.2 per cent in October.
Traffic measured in revenue passenger miles increased 5.7 per cent, on a 9.4-per-cent increase in capacity. The carrier flew 1.4 million passengers, up 3.8 per cent from the prior year.
