Alaska Airlines releases 2013 operational results

Alaska Airlines released its 2013 operational results on Monday. For the “mainline” operation, which does not include commuter flights, Alaska had a profitable year, though its load facts were down slightly compared to 2012.

Here’s the data, as provided by Alaska.

Metric 2,012 2,013 % change
Revenue passengers (in thousands) 19,737 18,526 6.50%
Revenue passenger miles RPM (in millions) 26,172 24,417 7.20%
Available seat miles ASM (in millions) 30,411 28,180 7.90%
Passenger load factor 86.10% 86.60% (0.5)pts
On-time arrivals as reported to U.S. DOT 87.20% 87.50% (0.3)pts

It’ll be interesting to see what happens in 2014, now that Delta has added a considerable number of flights at Alaska’s Seattle hub. The two carriers, who were once merely complementary partners, are now fierce rivals.¬†They remain codeshare partners, but certainly the scope of the relationship has changed.
