Brazilian airline Gol said on Thursday that a measure of ticket pricing known as passenger yield rose about 1 percent in August from a year earlier as it cut flights to restore profitability.
Gol Linhas Aereas cut routes by 7.7 percent in the month compared with a year earlier, while passenger traffic dropped 5.6 percent. As a result, the load factor rose 1.5 percentage points to 71 percent.
The airline is scaling back operations in the face of high fuel costs and a weaker local currency that it expects will cause an operating loss this year.
