The ATW 2023 award
Aviation Week Network’s Air Transport World (ATW) recognized Spirit Airlines for its efforts in the industry. It will be presented with the award on June 2, 2023, right before IATA Annual General Meeting. The award recognizes excellence in a wide range of airline operations. The reasons that made them seen by the awarding committee are their efforts in taking ultra-low fare travel to unprecedented heights.
The company keeps introducing new cabin enhancements for comfort and maintaining its commitment to affordable travel. Soon they will be introducing wider and more cushioned seats and new headrests. Newer seats are supposed to shed 11 pounds per set, further reducing weight.
Spirit Fit Fleet is believed to be the industry’s most fuel efficient. In Q2 2023, they are expecting their 200th Airbus delivery. Newer engines are said to reduce noise footprint by 75% and NO2 emission by 50%. The recent addition of a large aircraft maintenance facility at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and new crew bases increases the chances of a rally.

SAVE – Chart Analysis
A clear downward-sloping trend line is visible in the chart, and the current price point is trying to respect it and, if possible, break it and move toward the supply zone. The $19.00 mark is soft support; the price is expected to either consolidate or go up. If it is to go down the equilibrium point, it might enter the demand zone and could present decent buying opportunities.
If it manages to break the trend line, it might climb to the supply zone after some consolidation. However, a clear breakthrough cannot be expected at the moment.
