IATA: “Q2 2013 financial results show solid performance for the industry overall. The sample of 80 airlines shows improvement on a year ago, both at the operating and net profit level. The most significant improvement occurred in North America, where airlines are seeing the benefits of structural changes and consolidation. European airlines have managed to turn year-ago losses into profits in Q2 2013. Asia Pacific, by contrast, saw financial performance decline on a year ago, reflecting the importance of cargo and persisting regional weakness.” Source: Company statement, 07-Oct-2013.
