JetBlue Airways passenger numbers up 10.5% in Feb-2011

JetBlue Airways announced (10-Mar-2011) the following traffic highlights in Feb-2011:

  • Passenger numbers: 1.8 million, +10.5% year-on-year;
  • Passenger load factor: 80.1%, +5.6 ppts.

JetBlue: "JetBlue's preliminary passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) for the month of February increased 18% year over year. Approximately three points of this increase are attributable to the impact of severe weather in the north-east at the beginning of the month, which resulted in a lower than expected completion factor. For the first quarter of 2011, PRASM is expected to increase between 14 and 16% year over year," Source: Company statement, 10-Mar-2011.
