The national airline company has attained profits of € 5, 7 million from July 2015 to September 2015.
The second trimester has been extremely productive for Air Mauritius; it has not attained such results since some years now.
On the other hand, the € 5, 7 profits also bore the effects of hedging that was done last year at € 8, 3 million. If not for the hedging, it would have made profits of € 14 million this year.
Also, the net results of the trimester could not contain the advantages of lower fuel price because of the consequences of the hedging and the weak euro/dollar rate of exchange.
The airline company, however, pointed out that its results have been achieved in a heavily competitive context, and that despite the pressure, it has resisted and put in sustained efforts.
Furthermore, the turnover has also increased (by 5.1 % for the second trimester) to reach 131.1 million euros. During this period of time, it has known 382,600 passengers, marking an 11.7 % increase.
