August 2015 sees passengers fly further with JetBlue

JetBlue’s preliminary traffic results for August 2015 show that the average stage length flown by passengers is 1,104, a 1% increase on the average stage length of 1,093 flown in August last year.
However, load factor across the same respective periods decreased from 88.3% to 87%. This is due to available seat miles increasing by 8.3% from 4,210,974,000 in August 2014 to 4,558,901,000 in August 2015 against revenue passenger miles increasing by a lesser 6.7% from 3,718,923,000 to 3,966,602,000. Passenger numbers increased 4.9% year-over year from 3,131,183 to 3,283,266 and the airline’s departures for August 2015 grew by 5.4% to 28,903 from 27,420 in August 2014.
JetBlue's passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) decreased approximately 3% across the same respective periods following a late Labor Day. As a result, PRASM is expected to change between negative half percent and positive half percent for the third quarter of 2015 year-over-year.
The carrier’s preliminary completion factor for August 2015 was 98.9% and its on-time performance was 74%.
