This month, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) released data on transport service results of Japanese airline companies from July through September.

According to the data, the ratios of delays and cancellations were overall at about the same level as the same period the previous year, although the total number of people transported was at 22,877,596 people, and the total number of revenue from travelers was 378.98 billion yen, each down from the same period the previous year by 6.4% and 9.6% respectively. Sluggish aviation demand due to a sudden downturn in the business environment and accompanying reductions in routes were reflected in the lower transportation results during the summertime peak travel season.

The routes with the most travelers were Tokyo - Sapporo (2,636,501) at the top spot, followed by Tokyo - Fukuoka (1,931,152) and Tokyo - Naha (1,468,034). The percentage of seats filled on all routes was 65%. The top-performing routes in this category were Kansai - Hakodate (95%), Haneda - Ishigaki (86.9%) and Kansai - Asahikawa (86.5%).
