Atlantic Airways: "The outlook for growth in passenger numbers on scheduled services in Q4 is moderate. The reduction in government taxes since beginning of October is supporting demand, but uncertainty regarding economical consequences of the EU boycott of export from Faroes related to herring and mackerel can lead to general consumer concern. Atlantic Airways currently estimates the full-year result in 2013 to be profitable, but lower than the full-year result in 2012. Other risk factors mentioned in the Risk management section in the 2012 annual report may similarly affect the financial performance.” Source: Company statement, 01-Nov-2013.
