Virgin America Inc. Key Developments

Virgin America Inc. Provides Preliminary Operating Guidance for the Fourth Quarter and Tax Rate Guidance for the Year Ended December 31, 2015

Virgin America Inc. provided preliminary operating guidance for the fourth quarter and tax rate guidance for the year ended December 31, 2015. The company expects a tax rate of approximately 38.5% for full year 2016 but does not anticipate any material cash taxes in 2016 as the company’s federal net operating loss carry-forwards of approximately $690.0 million are expected to offset cash income taxes. For the quarter, the company’s preliminary calculations for passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) indicate a decrease of approximately 5.1% versus the fourth quarter of 2014. PRASM in the fourth quarter of 2015 was negatively impacted by weaker than expected demand in the month of December and a continued low fare environment in the markets that the company serves from Dallas Love Field. Total RASM (inclusive of other revenue) decreased approximately 4.7% versus the fourth quarter of 2014.

Virgin America Launches Daily Flights from Los Angeles to Hawai'i

Virgin America announced that it will service to Hawai'i with daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Honolulu, Oahu on May 5, 2016, and Kahului, Maui on June 14, 2016. Virgin America's expanded Hawai'i service also offers roundtrip connections between OGG and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), San Diego International Airport (SAN), Dallas Love Field (DAL), Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD), JFK, SEA, and LAS. The daily, nonstop flights will be operated with new Airbus A320 aircraft that Virgin America began taking delivery of last year, which are equipped with fuel-saving, 'sharklet' wingtip devices, allowing the airline to operate flights more efficiently, especially over longer haul routes.
