Posted 2 August 2017 · Add Comment

Jazeera Airways has released its second quarter financial results, reporting an operating profit of KD2.2 million, up 22.9% from the same period last year, and a net profit of KD2.3 million, reflecting a growth of 18.1% from the same period last year.

Jazeera Airways’ positive results were driven by higher utilization, improved network planning, and a strong demand for travel during the quarter, which was airline’s best second quarter by flown passengers since Q2 2009.

 

Q2 2017 Financial and Operational Highlights:

Operating revenue: KD14.0 million, up 9.5% from Q2 2016

Operating profit: KD2.2 million, up 22.9% from Q2 2016

Net profit: KD2.3 million, up 18.1% from Q2 2016

Load factor: 73.3%, up 1.5% from Q2 2016

 

H1 2017 Financial and Operational Highlights:

Operating revenue: KD24.1 million, down 2.4% from H1 2016

Operating profit: KD1.2 million, down 65.2% from H1 2016

Net profit: KD1.3 million, down 77.3% from H1 2016

Load factor: 72.6%, up 0.3% from H1 2016

 

Jazeera Airways Chairman Marwan Boodai said, “I am pleased to report to our shareholders that we are on track towards increasing shareholder value. The company’s double digit growth at both the operational level and the net level reflects this ongoing commitment.”

“Our half-year results, however, were pulled down by Q1’s earnings due to a host of external factors, most notably a slowing macroeconomy and the continued overcapacity on our routes. But the turn-around we saw in the airline’s performance in Q2 is very encouraging and we are well-positioned to sustain this positive performance in the coming quarters on the back of a series of customer-focused initiatives that we’ve been announcing for the past year. Currently, our team is focused on digitizing, maximizing, and monetizing Jazeera Airways even more. Earlier this week we launched our new brand, along with a reengineered jazeeraairways.com, which now has a strong e-commerce infrastructure tasked with delivering a faster and more rewarding experience for our customers. Our team is also working hard to further optimize our route network, to increase utilization of our fleet, to add new routes in the coming quarters, and to deliver the state-of-the-art dedicated terminal at Kuwait International Airport, which we promised to launch in the first quarter of next year.”
