The consolidation of domestic markets reinvigorated intra-regional traffic, allowing us to increase participation in the domestic markets of Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador by 2.25%, with our market share rising to 67.50% compared to 65.25% in 2010.
Participation in the International Market
During 2011, the integrated companies flew 9,413,356 passengers on their international network, representing an increase of 11.7% compared to 2010. ASK capacity grew by 11.8%.
Thanks to our fleet modernization program, where we highlight the streamlining of the number of aircraft types from nine in 2010 to six in 2011, we have achieved a significant reduction in maintenance and operation costs.
Destinations, Network of Routes and Alliances
We strengthened our joint network through nonstop point to point operations and connections between our hubs. This resulted in over 4,500 flights per week, to more than 100 destinations in 25 countries. Connections through the five continents were reinforced with routes to more than 750 destinations operated by commercial agreements (codeshare and interline), with other internationally renowned airlines.
During 2011, progress was made in the integration and interconnectivity of the four group hubs: Bogota, Colombia; San Salvador, El Salvador; San Jose, C.R. and Lima, Peru. Improvements in schedules and connection times resulted in the optimization of the travel experience for users on routes in the Americas and Europe.
