The Airline Stock Terminal

Airline stocks continue to fly high in the last five trading days, with most of the major companies gaining price momentum. This marks bullish trading for the airline industry since May 19.

One of the major news that surfaced in the past one week is the launch of PEOPLExpress, which is scheduled to start operations from June-end. In addition, JetBlue Airways Corporation's (Nasdaq:JBLU-Free Report) codeshare agreement with Singapore Airlines and GOL Linhas Aereas SA's (NYSE:GOL-Free Report) strategic partnership with France-KLM SA were some of the other highlights of the past week.

Recap of the Past One Week's Most Important Stories

1.    Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE:LUV-Free Report) was reportedly fined $200,000 for misleading customers through deceptive TV commercials. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Southwest Airlines advertised flight fares for a mere $59 from Atlanta to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. However, no seats were booked at that price. Consequently, regulators charged the company for violating rules related to advertising of airline fares.

On the positive side, the company announced the launch of mobile boarding passes instead of printed ones across all airports in the United States.

2.    In an attempt to strengthen its network, Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE:DAL-Free Report) has announced new non-stop flights from Seattle to popular ski and beach destinations across the Americas.  Delta is eyeing the maximum number of international destination flights from Seattle, higher than any of its peers. (Read More: Delta to Expand Seattle Network)

3.    Brazilian carrier GOL Linhas has received the green signal from its board to proceed with its exclusive strategic partnership with European giant Air France-KLM SA. This deal will provide GOL with an opportunity to expand its operations between Brazil and Europe. (Read more: GOL-Air France-KLM Deal Gets Approval)

4.    On May 29, JetBlue Airways announced that it has applied to the U.S. Department of Transportation to enter into a bilateral codeshare agreement with Singapore Airlines. The latest agreement, which is awaiting regulatory approval, will provide access to five new destinations across Europe and Asia for JetBlue passengers. (Read more: JetBlue, Singapore Airlines in Codeshare Pact).

5.    Once lost in the history of the airline industry, PEOPLExpress is now set to make a comeback. However, this time it is a new airline carrier reviving the old brand name of PEOPLExpress, which operated during 1981-87 as a low-cost carrier, prior to its merger with Continental Airlines, subsidiary of United Continental Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:UAL-Free Report). (Read more: PEOPLExpress to Fly as Budget Carrier)
