Operating revenue rose 3.87% to CNY51.9 billion while operating costs increased by 5% to CNY45.2 billion.

The Beijing-based carrier cited “robust growth in market demand” and “much lower fuel prices” as the main reasons for its much improved performance.

Passenger boardings jumped 8.8% to CNY44 million with an average load factor of almost 80%, down 0.72 percentage points compared to the year-ago period.

Passenger revenue climbed 9.5% to 82 billion RPKs versus an increase of 10.5% in passenger capacity to 103 billion ASKs.
