Cimber Sterling: “The growth in passenger numbers is expected to continue in 2010/11, which was confirmed by developments of the first few months of the financial year, and the higher capacity utilisation, the efficiency improvements and the increased cost awareness will allow for a potential major increase in operating profitability. On the other hand, an appreciation of the USD and the higher fuel price may have a particularly adverse impact on our results of operations,” Company statement. Source: Cimber Sterling, 06-Jul-2010.
