Icelandair Group: “The Company’s performance in the first quarter exceeded our expectations and the quarter was characterised by continued organic growth. The increase in income amounted to 21% between years, with passenger revenues up by 31%. At the beginning of the year we issued an EBITDA forecast for 2012, where we projected EBITDA in the range of USD 90-98 million. Since then the trends in operating conditions have mostly been positive. Based on current assumptions, EBITDA for the year is now projected at USD 100-105 million,” Björgólfur Jóhannsson, president and CEO. Source: Icelandair Group, 04-May-2012.
