4 Aerospace Stocks to Gain as U.S. Air Travel Increases
As in major countries across the world, a gradual rise in air travel has been observed in the United States over the past few weeks. While this came as a major boost for U.S. carriers, which were suffering due to the COVID-19 impact, Aerospace stocks that serve the commercial aftermarket also breathed a sigh of relief.
Notably, in the first 14 days of May 2020, close to 2.5 million people passed through checkpoints at U.S. airports, according to the Transportation Security Administration data. This indicates a surge of 63% from the same period in April. No doubt this has raised hopes for a possible rebound in U.S. air travel.
Will Air Travel Grow Further?
With more states easing travel restrictions and a slow yet steady rise in air passengers, major U.S. airlines recently announced plans to increase the number of domestic flights, ahead of the peak summer season.
Notably, American Airlines said that it is planning to fly more than 55% of its July 2019 domestic flight schedule in July 2020, after average daily passenger numbers increased from about 32,000 in April to more than 110,000 in late May.
OAG, which tracks the airline industry and flight schedules, says that the four biggest U.S. carriers, American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Airlines and Southwest Airlines are boosting their schedules in June by 27% from May. The majority of this increase is driven by additional domestic flights.
Surely these statistics indicate a rise in passenger air travel within the United States.
How Will Aerospace Stocks Benefit?
With increasing air travel, demand for aftermarket services are also expected to improve modestly, leading to growth opportunities for aerospace stocks that serve the commercial aftermarket.
Notably, aftermarket services comprise a wide range of offerings, from spare parts, software maintenance to field operations, end-of-life services and many more. As more passengers start to travel, demand for repair and overhaul services are projected to increase. This in turn will boost sales for companies operating in the aviation aftermarket industry.
