Korean Air slips to Q2 loss
SEOUL, 20 July 2012: Flag carrier Korean Air said Thursday it swung to a net loss in the second quarter of this year mainly due to foreign exchange losses.
The airline posted a net loss of 158.48 billion won (US$139.05 million) in the April to June period, compared with a profit of 21.15 billion won a year earlier.
Sales rose 11.1% from a year ago to 3.27 trillion won.
Korean Air expects better results in the third quarter, citing lower fuel prices and stable foreign exchange rates.
