(Reuters) – Spirit Airways (SAVE.N) on Friday lower its third-quarter outlook for a key income measure because it estimates an approximate $25 million hit on its gross sales, damage by a whole lot of flights cancellations attributable to Hurricane Dorian.
The corporate now expects third quarter unit income to fall between 2.5% and three.5% in comparison with its prior estimate of a decline of 1% to 2%.
The hurricane has led airline operators together with American Airways (AAL.O) and Delta Air Traces (DAL.N) to cancel 1000’s of flights throughout the US this week.
Dorian, which briefly made a landfall on the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Friday, is anticipated to convey tropical storm winds to Nantucket Island and Martha’s Winery, Massachusetts early on Saturday.
