06:02 EDTAAL, UAL, DAL, LUV, JBLUIATA cuts global airline profit forecast for 2014 to $18.7B
The International Air Transport Association announced that the airline industry remains on track to deliver a second consecutive year of improved profitability. This is despite a slight downward revision to its industry outlook for 2014 to an industry profit of $18.7B from the previously forecast $19.7B. The main driver of the downward revision is higher oil prices which are now expected to average $108.0/barrel which is $3.5/barrel above previous projections. The $3B added cost on the industry’s fuel bill is expected to be largely offset by stronger demand, especially for cargo, which is being supported by a strengthening global economy. Overall industry revenues are expected to rise to $745B, $2 billion greater than previously projected. “In general, the outlook is positive. The cyclical economic upturn is supporting a strong demand environment. And that is compensating for the challenges of higher fuel costs related to geo-political instability. Overall industry returns, however, remain at an unsatisfactory level with a net profit margin of just 2.5%,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO. Publicly traded companies in the space include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).
