Hawaiian Holdings’ Arm Sees Rise in Traffic Figures for July

Zacks

Hawaiian HoldingsHA wholly owned subsidiary Hawaiian Airlines reported a 1.9% rise in traffic, measured in revenue passenger miles (RPMs) for the month of July. The figure increased to 1.48 billion from 1.45 billion a year ago.

On a year-over-year basis, consolidated capacity (or available seat miles/ASMs) inched up 0.5% to 1.69 billion. Also, the load factor or percentage of seats filled by passengers rose to 87.3% from 86.2% recorded in Jul 2016, as traffic growth outpaced capacity expansion.

On a year-to-date basis, the carrier has registered a 6.1% rise in RPMs to 9.37 billion, while ASMs nudged up 3.3% to 10.95 billion, both on a year-over-year basis. Also, load factor increased by 220 basis points year over year to 85.6%. Plus, passenger count (PAX) for Jul 2017 and the first seven months of the year grew 2.5% and 3.3%, respectively.
