China Airlines falls
A China Airlines spokesman stated net profits for the first eight months of 2010 would exceed TWD10 billion, supported by cross-Strait services to the mainland. The carrier generated a profit of TWD6.3 billion in the first half of 2010, on rising demand and average fares.
The Taiwan-based carrier announced this week that it would join the SkyTeam Alliance. The airline’s decision follows China Eastern’s announcement of plans to join fellow manland carrier, China Southern, in alliance next year. China Airlines' shares eased 1.2% yesterday.
Thai Airways fell 3.3% ahead of today’s decision on the pricing of its THB15 billion (YSD483 million) share offer. The offer of 1 billion new shares is expected to be priced at THB31-34 per share, according to a Reuters poll – or a discount of up to 14% on Tuesday’s price.
