Launching 30 New Routes

Business travel has not yet seen a large recovery yet as many business have adapted towards Zoom calls and virtual conferences which have shown to be sufficient for maintaing operations. Unless there is a dire need for travel business are still not flying as much as they were back in Q4 of 2019.

Since the last quarter airlines are starting to see more demand for leisure travel start to rise. As families that have been in lock-down for months are itching to see loved ones again, more flights are being booked for domestic routes. The current environment for visiting friends and relatives is what is starting to grow as travel restrictions are starting to ease.

“Coronavirus has transformed airline route maps, and as we begin to see small signs of recovery, we continue to be flexible with our network plans to respond to demand trends and generate cash in support of our business,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning, JetBlue. “We’ve selected routes where customers are showing some interest in travel again and where our low fares and award-winning experience will be noticed.”

With much of their fleet currently parked in various airports these new routes will bring an opportunity to bring back some of the aircraft into service. Having more of the aircraft operational will help generate more revenue for the organization and also provide more hours to the crews.

jetBlue is focusing on key elements that their clients have shown to favor most. Providing their signature service practices with incredibly low fares, the airline is looking to continue to expand operations while maintaining positive cash flow and reserves.

The expanded service focuses on:

  • Growing relevance in JetBlue’s focus cities
  • Launch Mint flights between Newark and LAX/SFO
  • Playing to JetBlue’s strength in Florida with new point-to-point routes

New markets will be phased in between July and October. Seats on all new routes will be available for purchase Friday, June 19.

“We don’t believe customers should have to choose between a low fare and a great experience,” said Laurence. “These new routes are a win for customers, and we believe they will work especially well for us in this unique environment.”

Technical Analysis

Similar to the rest of the Airlines we can see the massive volatile drop that took place in the start of the year with the highs of the range. The bottom of the range can be found just below the $8 stock price value.

Using the Fibonacci Channel tool, we can start to mark the range for the trading zone. When drawing the tool we need to start with the bottom of the movement and place the top near the peak of the spike.

The bottom of the Fibonacci Channel will then meet with the next all time low for the range which can be seen on around May 13th. This tool uses mathematical high probability equations to be able to identify zones for the price range that will have a high probability of there being price action.

We can see in the start of the range how price is testing between the 0.382 range and the 0 mark of the channel. It is not until the price breaks out above the zone that it then creates the next support level on the previous resistance zone. Price continues with strength as trading volume increases till it reaches the $16 high. Since the high it has retraced back 50% of the total movement from the $8 low.

Since the $16 high price is not currently in a short downtrending pattern. Although when looking at the larger picture we can see the potential momentum of the price pushing up working towards potentially making new highs should this next low remain higher than the last.

The risk associated with investing in airlines is extremely high right considering that the prediction models for future travel are no longer accurate. Airlines are having the remain agile and course correct in midflight during these next few months as the market looks for more optimism regarding having the viral outbreak under control,.

Chasing a specific price in jetBlue is going to be equivalent to picking a winning lottery ticket. Holding on to long positions can expose your account to variable risk that is undefined. Creating controlled risk positions is going to be essential to help eliminate exposure to volatility spikes that could potentially go against your trade.
