Pegasus ne va pas trop bien ...
Et ses cdes de A320 NEO, un peu à risque qq part (C'est moi qui le dit !)
Evidemment les horreurs politiques et autres attentats en Turquie, ne vont pas aider le tourisme, c'est comme en Egypte ...
Chronique d'une récession dans le transport aérien Turque annoncée ....
“Despite the challenging conditions the tourism sector has experienced in 2016 we at Pegasus never wavered from our growth targets or the belief in our country, working harder than ever to ensure that, despite the fall in demand on some of our routes, we achieved robust growth in our key target areas including for overall guest numbers, number of flights and turnover,” commented Pegasus CEO Mehmet Nane.
Keeping to those targets has meant slashing prices, so overall sales rose only a small amount despite almost a million more passengers in the first half of the year.
Unsurprisingly, though, costs have grown significantly as Pegasus keeps on adding aircraft; staff and operating lease expenses, for instance, both climbed nearly 50 per cent.
For now, these expenses are being partially offset by cheaper fuel, but the airline’s bullish plans assume a return to some kind of normality in Turkey.
But as long as Syria burns on its border that will probably be out of reach, while the Erdogan government’s hard-line response to an attempted coup – which includes aspersions that it was encouraged by Western powers – won’t help restore the country’s appeal to tourists.
