Cargo chiefs optimistic on 2018 profitability

The majority (56%) of airline chief financial officers and heads of cargo expect their profitability levels to improve further over the coming 12 months. An early January 2018 survey for the IATA Airline Business Confidence Index saw the passenger and cargo executives indicate an improvement in year-on-year profitability in the final quarter of 2017 compared with the same period in 2016. The positive outlook on profitability in 2018 is being supported by “robust demand growth on both the passenger and freight sides of the business” said IATA.
