Trefis expects Alaska Airlines (NYSE:ALK) Average Occupancy Rate to increase from around 55% in 2020 to about 67% in 2021 and to over 80% by 2022. Occupancy rates are defined as the percentage of seats occupied by revenue paying passengers in a flight.
While demand took a sharp hit in 2020 due to Covid-19, things are likely to get better over 2021 and 2022, as over 50% of U.S. adults are now vaccinated.
Alaska Airlines’ stock has rallied by about 17% year-to-date, and we think it has room for further gains as the recovery gathers pace. We value the stock at about $66 per share, ahead of the $58 market price.
