WestJet Airlines and Air Canada both flew fuller planes in March than a year earlier, the two airlines said on Wednesday.

Montreal-based Air Canada, the operating arm of ACE Aviation Holdings, said its March traffic, measured by revenue passenger miles, rose 6.4 percent from a year earlier, while overall capacity increased by 1.7 percent.

Its passenger load factor rose 3.5 percentage points, to 79.8 percent, from 76.3 percent in March 2004.

Domestically, traffic increased by 3.3 percent, while capacity decreased by 1.1 percent. The load factor rose 3.4 percentage points, to 79 percent from 75.6 percent a year ago.

Air Canada, the country's major carrier, said March was the 12th straight record month for its load factor.

Number 2 carrier WestJet, Canada's leading discount airline, said its traffic for March 2005 rose 54.7 percent from a year ago, while overall capacity rose 34.7 percent.

Its load factor was up 10.1 percentage points at 77.8 percent. This compares with 67.7 percent last March.

Both airlines have benefited from the demise of discount competitor Jets go in early March.
