Air New Zealand reported an 84.1% Load Factor for FY14 with 13,719,000 passengers carried. This is mainly thanks to domestic passengers, with domestic capacity up 5.4% on the back of the replacement of the Boeing 737-300 fleet with Airbus A320s, and the introduction of new ATR 72-600s. Domestic saw 8,920,000 passengers with a load factor of 81.1%.
