Copa Holdings: “For 2013, the Company is updating its full year guidance to reflect a slight increase in CASM ex-fuel, from 6.6 cents to 6.7 cents. Guidance in terms of capacity growth, load factor, unit revenues (RASM) and operating margin remain unchanged. Factored into the current guidance is an estimated effective price per gallon of jet fuel, including the effect of current hedge contracts and into-plane costs, of USD3.20 per gallon.” Source: Company statement, 07-Aug-2013.
