Cimber reports first quarter loss, hope rests with new owners

Premium Analysis

Danish LCC Cimber Sterling reported an operating loss of DKK8.6 million (EUR1.2 million) in its fiscal first quarter (three months to 31-Jul-2011), a narrow improvement over the airline’s 1Q2010 DKK9.6 million (EUR1.3 million) operating loss. At the net level, however, the airline’s performance deteriorated due to a blowout in financing expenses.
