JetBlue Airways Corporation (JetBlue Airways) (New York) today reported its results for the first quarter 2013:

  • Operating income for the quarter was $59 million, resulting in a 4.5% operating margin, compared to operating income of $89 million and a 7.4% operating margin in the first quarter of 2012.
  • Pre-tax income of $23 million in the first quarter. This compares to pre-tax income of $49 million in the first quarter of 2012.
  • Net income for the first quarter was $14 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. This compares to JetBlue’s first quarter 2012 net income of $30 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.

 

“Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated crewmembers, we reported our twelfth consecutive quarter of profitability,” said Dave Barger, JetBlue’s President and Chief Executive Officer. ”First quarter results were solid but below those of a year ago, primarily due to Hurricane Sandy-related demand weakness in the Northeast during the peak Presidents’ Day travel period and higher than expected maintenance costs during the quarter. While the first quarter was challenging, we remain focused on achieving sustainable, profitable growth and are optimistic about the rest of the year.”

 

Operational Performance

 

JetBlue reported record first quarter operating revenues of $1.3 billion despite the lingering impact of Hurricane Sandy, which reduced revenue during the Presidents’ Day travel period by an estimated $25 million. Revenue passenger miles for the first quarter increased 7.6% to 8.51 billion on a capacity increase of 6.3%, resulting in a first quarter load factor of 83.9%, an increase of 1.0 point year over year.

 

Yield per passenger mile in the first quarter was 13.95 cents, up 0.7% compared to the first quarter of 2012. Passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) for the first quarter 2013 increased 1.8% year over year to 11.70 cents and operating revenue per available seat mile (RASM) increased 1.5% year over year to 12.81 cents.

 

“Successful execution of our network plan, particularly in Boston, and our continued focus on high-margin products and services contributed to the solid revenue results we announced today,” said Robin Hayes, JetBlue’s Chief Commercial Officer.

 

Operating expenses for the quarter increased 11.3%, or $126 million, over the prior year period. JetBlue’s operating expense per available seat mile (CASM) for the first quarter increased 4.6% year over year to 12.23 cents. Excluding fuel and profit sharing, CASM increased 6.6% to 7.62 cents, driven in part by approximately $20 million of higher than expected maintenance expense related to JetBlue’s EMBRAER 190 aircraft.

 

Fuel Expense and Hedging

 

JetBlue continued to hedge fuel to manage price volatility. During the first quarter JetBlue hedged approximately 8% of its fuel consumption and managed approximately 10% of its fuel consumption using fixed forward price agreements (FFPs), resulting in a realized fuel price of $3.29 per gallon, a 1.3% increase over first quarter 2012 realized fuel price of $3.25.

 

JetBlue has managed approximately 37% of its second quarter projected fuel requirements using a combination of FFPs, collars, swaps and call options. Based on the fuel curve as of April 19th, JetBlue expects an average price per gallon of fuel, including the impact of hedges, FFPs and fuel taxes, of $3.03 in the second quarter.

 

Balance Sheet Update

 

JetBlue ended the first quarter with approximately $849 million in unrestricted cash and short term investments. In addition, JetBlue maintains a $200 million line of credit with Morgan Stanley.

 

JetBlue announced today that it has obtained a new revolving credit facility for up to $350 million. “We continue to enhance and optimize our liquidity position through our growing unencumbered asset base and credit facilities, which we believe will be accretive to return on invested capital,” said Mark Powers, JetBlue’s Chief Financial Officer.

 

Second Quarter and Full Year Outlook

 

For the second quarter of 2013, CASM is expected to be between negative 1.5% and positive 0.5% compared to the year-ago period. Excluding fuel and profit sharing, CASM in the second quarter is expected to increase between 3.0% and 5.0% year over year. JetBlue expects nearly three quarters of this year over year increase to be driven by maintenance expense.

 

CASM for the full year is expected to increase between 1.5% and 3.5% over full year 2012. Excluding fuel and profit sharing, CASM in 2013 is expected to increase between 2.0% and 4.0% year over year.

 

Capacity is expected to increase between 6.5% and 8.5% in the second quarter and to increase between 6.0% and 8.0% for the full year.

 

In other news, Jetblue announced Lima will become the 81st Blue City beginning on November 21. The capital of Peru will become the fourth destination in South America with one daily flight from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, subject to government approval.

Se a JetBlue colocar também, um voo "Lima-Orlando" com saída próxima do voo "Lima-Fort Lauderdale", como eu já havia dito antes, não duvido num voo VCP-Lima com a AZUL, fazendo conexão com esses voos. [igual a antiga rota da Braniff International de MIA para Campinas]

:anta: Mais rápido que o seu pensamento!!!!!!

 

Nos anos 70, voei muitas vezes na rota "Campinas-Lima-Miami" com a Braniff.

Mas isso quando "Campinas era GRU"......Ou seja, quando Campinas (VCP) recebia todos os voos internacionais de SP.....Outro momento!

Só na cabeça de alguns membros do CR mesmo é que a AZUL e JETBLUE tem essa afinidade que aonde irmã americana pousar na América Latina a brasileira irá logo atrás com algum voo para VCP.

Campinas não é mais GRU, mas é o hub da Azul, atraindo pax do Brasil todo e também da região de influência de GRU. Nós da capital de SP estamos cada vez mais acostumados a ouvir pessoas pegando os ônibus para voar a partir de VCP. Trata-se de um aeroporto que deve atingir 10 milhões de pax este ano e com um novíssimo terminal (e 28 pontes de embarque) a caminho. Será, sem sombra de dúvida, um dos 5 maiores aeroportos do país em poucos anos, ainda mais quando tiver uma melhor infraestrutura (segunda pista e trem ligando-o à RMSP).

A meu ver, é questão de tempo para termos mais voos internacionais a partir daquele terminal e um VCP-LIM-FLL não seria uma má idéia.

No news for me about you wrote. Só acho que VCP seria uma boa alternativa de voos internacionais caso GRU ficasse completamente impraticável...Coisa que não deve acontecer com a GRU Airport.

Vou observando os movimentos da Jetblue aqui e qualquer coisa eu posto.

Agora, vamos la:

- O mercado peruano precisava mesmo de uma mexida nesses voos de longo curso. Praticamente temos um voo diário das americanas, voos da Taca e da Lan.

- A partir de maio, Taca vira Avianca e quero ver se o ritmo de expansão vai ser o mesmo da Avianca Brasil. Hoje aqui, eles detem cerca de 14% do share e tem se expandido pouco.

- Com a chegada da JetBlue, a tendencia é ter uma mexida principalmente nessa concorrencia com a AA e a UA.

Complementando:

Como centro de CNX nacional da Azul, pode ser! O&D, não!

Parem com essas ideias caixa fechada de que isso não pode, aquilo não deve.

 

Até pouco tempo VCP estava fadado a ser um elefante branco e só prestava pra carga. A Azul veio ai e provou que VCP serve pra muito mais coisas.

Então agora a ideia é que pra cnx nacional VCP serve, mas pra outras coisas não.... pq?

Eu acho que VCP serve pra tudo. CNX nacional, o&d nacional, conexão internacional, o&d intl também. É só querer e saber fazer.

 

Eu e muita gente que conheço aqui da região de NVT constantemente vamos a SP via VCP.

Calma, gente boa! Quando disse "conexão nacional", ma referi a todo tipo de CNX: Voos internacionais e nacionais de PAX chegando em voos da Azul. Quanto ao O&D cada um com sua opinião, certo? Na minha, GRU já faz esse servico para o estado de SP.

 

Obs.: Procure saber quantos passageiros tem ORIGEM em VCP e quantos chegam para conexão em voos da Azul....
