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.
