The national carrier of Sri Lanka, SriLankan Airlines, has revealed that it has surpassed an internal company record, achieving the highest ever monthly revenue in the company’s history for December 2017. The landmark figure was the highest the company has achieved in its 38-year history.

According to SriLankan Airlines, the record can be attributed to the airline’s expanded network, as well as the continuous improvement in revenue management processes.

In December, the airline reported carrying 566,627 passengers, a 27% over the same period in 2016, as well as a passenger load factor of 85.9%. Additionally, the company’s cargo business saw a 23% year-over-year increase, reaching 12,016 metric tonnes.

In terms of routes, SriLankan Airlines launched a new route to Melbourne, Australia, which has reportedly achieved a passenger load factor of 92.4%.

From an operations standpoint, the airline recorded an average aircraft utilisation of 13.8 hours per day, while its fleet of Airbus A330 aircraft says daily usage of 15.2 hours.

The only major negative impact shared by the airline during December 2017 was due to two days of fog in Gulf that led to delays due to aircraft diversions.
