Sun Country seeing 'rapid acceleration' in passenger demand: CFO

Sun Country Airlines president and CFO Dave Davis, speaking at CAPA Live from Puerto Rico October 2021, stated (13-Oct-2021) "faster improvement in the charter market and a lot of strength in our Amazon business has served us well, both through COVID and then into 2021". Mr Davis reported a "very strong rebound in passenger demand" in 2Q2021 followed by a pull back in late Aug-2021 and Sep-2021, which was "very much delta variant related". Mr Davis said: "In the last three to four weeks, there's been another pretty rapid acceleration for us in our scheduled passenger demand". He added: "As we're heading into the holiday season - Thanksgiving, Christmas - we're definitely seeing strong demand" and noted the company is "really bullish" about demand for 1Q2022.
