2017 Capital Expenditures Breakdown

Investing in our business is one of our most important priorities as a high-value, low-cost, growth Company. Capital expenditures are categorized in four primary buckets: aircraft, facilities, technology, and other non-aircraft investments. To make progress toward offsetting the fleet deficit resulting from our decision to accelerate the retirement of our 87 remaining Boeing 737-300 aircraft by the end of third quarter 2017, we added 70 new and pre-owned Boeing 737 aircraft to our fleet in 2017. During 2017, we were building a new Flight Operations Training Center and additional office space at our Headquarters in Dallas, and we had several hangar projects in process throughout our system. We also successfully executed the deployment of a new reservation system in 2017. All of these investments support our growth, give our Employees better tools to provide their legendary Hospitality, and help us drive further efficiency and productivity.
