Hawaiian Airlines announced operational results for February 2020.

The airline reported that it carried 856,687 passengers in February, a year-over-year decrease of 1.6% from 870,537 in the same period last year.

Traffic for the Honolulu-based carrier during the month was 1.34 billion RPMs, or revenue passenger miles, an increase of 6.4% from 1.26 billion RPMs in February 2018. The carrier’s total capacity for the month was up 13.3% to 1.68 billion ASMs, or available seat miles, from 1.49 billion ASMs last February.

Meanwhile, Hawaiian’s consolidated load factor was 79.3%, a 5.2 percentage point decline from 84.5% the previous February.

In addition, the airline said it was withdrawing its estimate for operating revenue per available seat mile given the current demand reductions associated with the novel coronavirus outbreak. If there are not new net bookings for March as of March 5, 2020, revenue per available seat mile would be down 12% year-over-year for the first quarter.
