New Market Research Report: Poland Freight Transport Report Q4 2014

Logo2.8% GDP Growth Expected This Year

Market Report, "Transportation in Argentina", Published

LogoAerolineas Argentinas closed the 2013 fiscal year with a deficit of US$247 million - 44% lower than the 2012 deficit of US$447. According to Mr Mariano Recalde, Aerolineas Argentina's President, the number of passengers carried, flight hours and incomes increased in 2013. Despite this improvement of the company's economic situation in January 2014, the Federal Government accelerated the devaluation of the Peso to 30% (from ARS6 to ARS8 per dollar) - a development which is expected to negatively impact Aerolineas' results in the short term due to increasing fuel oil, aircraft leasing and labour costs. As of February 2014, it was not yet clear if the Peso devaluation would positively impact incoming tourism flows and thus help the nationalised airline face its increasing costs because the Federal Government did not have any plan to control high inflation, which would erase any benefits associated with the Peso devaluation in the short term.
