Vueling, the new-generation airline, carried 8.2 million passengers during 2009, with an average seat-load factor of 73.7%—a 3.4-point increase with regards to 2008.

Vueling’s monthly, quarterly and annual main traffic figures are as follows:

ASK (available seat-kilometre): number of seats flown multiplied by the number of kilometres flown

RPK (revenue passenger-kilometre): number of passengers carried multiplied by the amount of kilometres they flew


p>Vueling reached the 25-millionth passenger mark in 2009, after slightly over 5 years of operations. Passenger volumes greatly increased during the year thanks to its merger with Clickair, and after the fall registered in 2008, as a consequence of the company’s fleet reduction plan.
