The company said it experienced weakness in bookings in the quarter, which it said was due to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention order to require a negative COVID-19 test for entry into the U.S. "However, as infection and hospitalization rates have materially declined and vaccine distribution has increased during the quarter, the Company has experienced recent strength in domestic and short-haul international bookings," the company said in a regulatory filing. As of March 26, the carrier's seven-day moving average of net bookings is about 90% of the level seen in 2019, with a domestic load factor of about 80%.

Shares have gained 45% in the year to date, while the U.S. Global JETS ETF has gained 19% and the S&P 500 has gained 6%.
