While the number declined sharply in 2020 due to the Covid-19 related lockdowns and travel restrictions, progress with mass vaccination programs is likely to lead to a gradual recovery in air passenger numbers.

So What?

We think that the projected recovery isn’t yet priced into JetBlue stock. We value JetBlue at about $20 per share, compared to the current market price of about $15.
