United January 2016 operational performance level YoY

United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) reported January 2016 consolidated traffic (revenue passenger miles) increased 0.1 percent and consolidated capacity (available seat miles) decreased 0.1 percent versus January 2015, the company said.

UAL´s January 2016 consolidated load factor increased 0.2 points compared to January 2015.

The company continues to expect first-quarter 2016 consolidated passenger unit revenue to decline 6 to 8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015, with the decline driven largely by a strong US dollar, lower surcharges, travel reductions from customers impacted by declining oil prices and softening domestic and international yields.

United Airlines and United Express operate an average of nearly 5,000 flights a day to 342 airports across six continents. Approximately 84,000 United employees reside in every US state and in countries around the world.
