Overall, 60% of the cost of the airlines are pegged to the dollar. Recently, TAM reduced the supply of seats and made layoffs to balance the books.
For the Sales Director of TAM, Klaus Kuhnast, the dollar reached a stable level, around £2.35, which does not require measures such as increase tickets prices.
“With this stability, we can maintain the company’s plans based on the actions we’ve ever done.” From 2011 to now, the company cut supply by 12%.
This year, according to Kuhnast will be stable in the number of passengers. However, in the last quarter, the market performance will be better than the first six months of 2013.
“This is a period traditionally stronger, due to more demand,” he said.
