Brazilian carrier Gol has reported growth of approximately 4% in passenger revenue per available seat kilometre in August.

Systemwide passenger traffic declined 5.6% in August, while total capacity fell 7.7%, resulting in a 1.5 percentage point increase in the load factor to 71%.

Domestic traffic fell 6.4% while capacity was down 8.5%. The domestic passenger load factor grew 1.6 percentage points to 71.7%.

The airline says that the domestic demand fell chiefly due to the slower growth of the Brazilian economy in August.

Fuel prices for the month were up 12% year-on-year, adds the carrier.
