Second quarter loss | United Airlines returns to aviation

0

(New York) US carrier United Airlines has been in the throes of an outbreak and continues to lose money in the second quarter, but is optimistic about months to thank for the resurgence of aviation.


The company expects to post adjusted pre-tax profits for the second half of the year, especially with the gradual return of business travel at the end of the summer, a press release said on Tuesday.

Delta doesn’t seem to care much about the rapid spread of variance and expects full revenues to meet demand by 2023.

To prepare for this, at the end of June the company created the largest range in its history: the 200 Boeing 737 Max and 70 Airbus A321 Neo.

Meanwhile, United Airlines lost an additional $ 434 million from April through June.

However, the company drastically reduced its losses compared to the second quarter of 2020 (1.6 billion), and traffic in the United States was very low after the start of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Since then, with the vaccination campaign in the country and the gradual reopening of tourist sites, Americans have regained a taste for travel and are gradually recalling flights.

At the same time, international travel and business travel “have accelerated faster than expected,” the United Nations said in a statement.

United’s revenue quadrupled to $ 5.47 billion last year.

However, this is 52% less than the same period in 2019.

Total revenue from available seats and kilometers driven decreased by 11% compared to 2019, while the company significantly reduced operating costs.

“Based on current trends,” United expects the airline-specific measure to resume in the third quarter.

Delta and American Airlines also slightly improved their financing in the second quarter by purchasing airline tickets in the United States last week.
