 DELTA AIR LINES REPORTS JANUARY TRAFFIC
 ATLANTA, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL)


today reported traffic results for January 1992.
 Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) totaled 5.639 billion during January, a 15.1 percent increase over the same month a year earlier. Capacity grew 25.1 percent to 10.633 billion available seat miles (ASMs). The load factor for January 1992 was 53.03 percent. Passenger boardings for January totaled 5,874,422.
 Commenting on the results, Robert W. Coggin, senior vice president - marketing development and planning, said, "Domestic traffic growth in January reflects comparisons with a strong traffic base last year when a major competitor ceased operations, there was greater impact from Christmas holiday travel, and a deep discount fare program was in place."
 Coggin added that "...January international traffic growth was strong, the result of Delta's expansion in new markets and the negative impact of last year's Middle East crisis." Passenger yield growth in January was stronger than in recent months and similar yield growth is possible for February, he said.
