Net yield was up 11% YoY to between (Brazilian Real) R$0.20 and R$0.21 while fuel price was down 0.1% YoY. In the domestic market, supply was down 6.1% YoY, primarily due to the discontinuation of Webjet's operations. GOL Linhas stated that the combination of this decline and the upturn in PRASK underlines the attractiveness of its services for passengers willing to pay for higher yields. In the International Market, the supply was up 39.3% YoY, primarily attributable to the daily flights to Santo Domingo, Miami, and Orlando.
