- PERFORMANCE: Southwest Airlines achieved record revenues of $17.7 billion in 2013, boosted by strong yields and an 80.1 percent load factor. Through the combination of stable fuel prices and rigorous cost control efforts, the Company met its goal to improve cost performance. Despite a roller coaster economy, the Company achieved record earnings, and, while just short of its 15 percent pre-tax return on invested capital (excluding special items) (ROIC) target, produced the best pre-tax ROIC since 2000.
- PEOPLE: Southwest Airlines Employees volunteered more than 144,000 hours, which is enough time to fly between Orlando International Airport and San Juan Luis Munoz Marin International Airport— one of Southwest's first near-international routes—52,364 times.
- PLANET: By continuing to improve our fuel efficiency from 2012 to 2013, we saved nearly 60 million gallons of jet fuel—that's equivalent to approximately 9,900 roundtrip flights between Chicago Midway (MDW) and Las Vegas (LAS) while at the same time achieving an absolute decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.
