JACKSON, Wyo. — A report released by the Jackson Hole Airport indicates that January 2021 airport loads were significantly lower than last year’s.
A load factor can be calculated by dividing the number of passengers by the number of seats.
Although January 2021 had 106 more flights than January 2020, the previous year had nearly a 25% higher load factor, meaning last month saw fewer passengers per flight than the year prior.
The total load factor was 55.82% in Jan. 2021 compared to 80.08% in Jan. 2020. In December 2020, the load factor was 41.36%.
In April 2020 when COVID-19 drastically affected flights, the load factor was only 6.10%.
The full report for the Jackson Hole Airport load factors can be found here for data gathered thus far in 2021, as well as previous years.
