US Airways reports passenger increase

Posted: July 06, 2012

US Airways Group Inc. reported slightly higher passenger counts in June, compared with the same month in 2011, buoyed by increased Latin American travel.

Total passenger boardings were 5,394,173, up 0.1 percent from 5,387,677 for June 2011.

Passenger revenue per available seat-mile increased about 6 percent for the month, president Scott Kirby said in a statement.

"Despite record-setting temperatures and severe weather along the East Coast, our team of 32,000 employees ran an outstanding airline, achieving our best-ever June performance in on-time departures and arrivals and baggage handling," Kirby said.

For June, US Airways reported 86.2 percent of its planes arrived on time.
