What problems? Most of CAPA’s Top 20 European airline stocks outperformed the market in 2012

Premium Analysis

“Beleaguered airlines” is an expression frequently heard. The trials and tribulations of the airline business are only too well documented.

But 2012 did not reflect any such burdens on most airline share prices – at least not in Europe. Despite a gruesome economic environment and uncertainty during the year, many major airlines clawed their way back on stock exchanges across the region as investors reacted against the often steep falls of 2011. Improved 3Q2012 results added to the positive sentiment.

Anyone investing wisely in European airlines in Jan-2012 would have been looking at a tidy paper profit by the end of the year.

Of CAPA’s Top 20 European airlines (by seats flown), most outperformed the overall market, with Turkish Airlines shares rising a near-unbelievable 193%.
