Aer Lingus Group: “We do not expect any improvement in the short haul environment for the rest of 2013 which remains characterised by heavily discounted fare offerings across Europe. The 2013 outlook on long haul remains positive with the exception of some weakness expected in November which was previously communicated. We maintain our current guidance for full year 2013 operating profit, before net exceptional items, to be around EUR60 million,” Christoph Mueller, CEO. Source: Company statement, 05-Nov-2013.
