KUALA LUMPUR- Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia (AIRA.KL: Quote, Profile, Research) carried 19 percent more passengers in the third quarter from a year earlier, the company said on Monday.

Southeast Asia's largest low-cost airline by fleet size said it carried a total of 3.6 million passengers during the quarter.

The airline's passenger carrying capacity, measured in available seat kilometres, expanded by 13 percent after it took delivery of new aircraft.

Third-quarter seat load factor, or the percentage of total seats fill, was unchanged at 75 percent from a year ago, it said.

AirAsia said these figures are preliminary and have not been reviewed by its auditors.
