Brazilian Airline TAM Brazil's airline leader TAM announced that it carried a record 91,000 passengers on its domestic and international flights in a single day,  Monday, April 9, right after the Easter holiday, topping a record that hadn't been beaten for close to a year.

Out of this total, about 82,600 people traveled on domestic lines operated by the company and accounted for a 84% of the passengers while the other 8,800 passengers took 72% of available seats on TAM international flights.

This resulted represents 80% total load factor for the airline company on the Monday following Easter.

In the international lines segment operated by Brazilian airlines, TAM increased its market share to 62.86% in March 2007 and also continued the leadership achieved in this market since July last year.

TAM has been the leader in the Brazilian domestic market for more than three years, and held a 51.7% domestic market share and 62.9% international market share at the end of March 2007.

TAM operates regular flights to 48 destinations throughout Brazil. It serves 75 different cities in the domestic market through regional alliances.

Additionally, it maintains code-share agreements with international airline companies that allow passengers to travel to a large number of destinations throughout the world.
