JetBlue Reports Traffic Rise


By the Caribbean Journal staff

JetBlue continued its rebound from Irma and Maria last month with another solid month of growth, according to the carrier’s latest data report.

Traffic in November increased by 2.8 percent from November 2016, with a capacity increase of 4.3 percent.

Irma and Maria had led to significant declines in traffic because of JetBlue’s massive network in the Caribbean.

In all, JetBlue reported 3.7 billion revenue passenger miles last month, with 4.45 billion available seat miles.

Load factor declined, however, with a 1.2 percentage point decrease to 84.2 percent.

Irma and Maria will likely have an impact on revenue, however, with JetBlue now projecting a negative impact of around 50 basis points for the fourth quarter.
