Malaysia Airline Systems: “The Group remains cautiously optimistic of its performance for the rest of the year. Whilst the carrier’s operating statistics for the first quarter showed strong growth, the business environment is getting tougher. Added capacity in the market, increased competition and continued high jet fuel prices are putting pressure on yields.” Source: Company statement, 29-May-2013.
