Regional airline Flybe says it has seen growth in passenger revenue since making the decision to cut seat capacity on its routes.
Flybe reported an increase in load factor of 8.6 percentage points, as well as passenger revenue growth of 8.5 per cent in the third quarter of 2017.
The airline reduced seat capacity by 4.2 per cent, resulting in revenue per seat rising by 13.3 per cent.
Despite the reduction in capacity, Flybe saw an 8.1 per cent increase in passenger numbers to 2.3 million.
The carrier says its focus will now be reducing costs and maintaining greater control over reliability.
