Strong Passenger Load factor Recorded for Q2 by AirAsia

According to Capital A Bhd, AirAsia Malaysia reached 6.4 million passengers during the second quarter (Q2) of 2023 with an impressive overall load factor of 87%.

The low cost airline said that the domestic performance was extremely robust throughout the second quarter of 2023 and that the international market traffic remained brisk with a favourable load factor.

AirAsia has reallocated more capacity to international routes to meet the strong resurgence from the international market in response to the robust demand from that sector.

AirAsia Malaysia, AirAsia Thailand, AirAsia Indonesia, and AirAsia Philippines had a robust load factor of 88 percent, carrying 14.2 million passengers, nearly twice the amount year-over-year (YoY) in 2Q23, according to Capital A.

16.2 million seats were available across the whole airline, and 146 of the 166 operational planes were flying.

“To date, the consolidated airlines have recovered 73 per cent and 74 per cent of the first half of 2019 (1H19) capacity and passengers carried respectively.

“With the strong resurgence of travel demand, the group available seat kilometres (ASK) grew to 18,989 million, improved 132 per cent YoY and revenue passenger kilometres (RPK) up by 146 per cent YoY, recorded at 16,312 million,” the company said in a statement today.

In Q2 of 2023, Airasia Superapp had its highest quarterly average monthly active users (MAU) of 15 million, an increase of 40% YoY. This indicates that the app is still on the upswing.

As a result, there were 7.9 million transactions, up 102% year over year.

As the number of transactions increased more than two-fold when compared to the average MAU on an annual basis, Capital A stated that the optimistic results imply enhanced user engagement in the app.

The number of carded users on BigPay increased by 16% year over year to 1.4 million consumers.
