Ranked eighth among the Forbes America’s best employers list, JetBlue Airways has been providing passenger air transportation services since 2000. It was ranked as the sixth largest airline in the United States as of the end of 2016, serving destinations in the U.S., Mexico, Caribbean, and Central and South America. In 2016, JetBlue employed 4,840 part-time and 13,566 full-time employees.
The company’s net income has been increasing since the fiscal year of 2011: In 2015, JetBlue’s net income reached around 677 million U.S. dollars. In 2016, salaries, wages and benefits were the largest single category of operating expenses.
JetBlue’s revenue rose from about 4.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2011 to around 6.6 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. JetBlue carried more than 38 million passengers in 2016 and had a capacity of almost 45 billion available seat miles (ASMs). The airline’s impressive growth was largely driven by an increase in available seat miles, a higher passenger load factor and lower fuel costs. In 2016, JetBlue used 760 million gallons for flying operations and paid around 1.4 U.S. dollars for each gallon of fuel, down from almost two U.S. dollars per gallon a year earlier. The company reported in 2016 over 45.6 billion revenue passenger miles with a load factor of 85.1 percent, and an average passenger fare of almost 157 U.S. dollars.
