The year 2018 was more favourable for FPC than 2017.
In 2018, FPC met the demand for passenger services by carrying over 102 million passengers (up 7.2% year-on-year), including 60.3 million in the regulated segment and 41.7 million in the deregulated segment.
By the end of the year, passenger km travelled totalled 91.6 billion, up 5.3% year-on-year, mainly driven by FPC’s trains: passenger km travelled totalled 87.7 billion, including 33.6 billion in the deregulated segment and 54.1 billion in the regulated segment.
With the passenger km travelled (up 6% year-on-year) growing faster than the carriage km (up 2.8% year-on-year), we improved our carriage capacity utilisation rates to 71.1% (up 3.1% year-on-year).
