JetBlue Airways Reports June 2013 Traffic

NEW YORK, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JetBlue Airways Corporation [NASDAQ: JBLU] reported its preliminary traffic results for June 2013. Traffic in June increased 7.8 percent from June 2012, on a capacity increase of 8.0 percent.

Load factor for June 2013 was 85.7 percent, a decrease of 0.2 points from June 2012. JetBlue's preliminary completion factor was 99.3 percent and its on-time (1) performance was 69.6 percent.  JetBlue's preliminary passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) for the month of June was relatively flat year over year.  June PRASM was negatively impacted by a one-time noncash adjustment related to the points expiration change in JetBlue's loyalty program, which lowered PRASM by approximately one percentage point.  This adjustment was not included in previous guidance.
