“This is more good news for Air Malta as this index is used to gauge the customer’s overall satisfaction with the airline and the customer’s loyalty to the brand,” commented Ursula Silling, Air Malta’s chief commercial officer.

Emirates Group interim profit up 65%

The Emirates Group marked one of its best half-year profit performances ever, with net profit rising to AED3.7 billion (€0.9 billion), up 65 per cent over the last year’s results.

Revenue reached AED 46.1 billion, down 2.3 per cent from the same period last year, reflecting the impact of the strong dollar against major currencies.

The group’s cash position on September 30 was at AED14.8 billion, compared to AED20 billion as at March 31. This is due to ongoing investments mainly into new aircraft, airline-related infrastructure projects and business acquisitions.

During the first six months of the financial year, Emirates received 13 wide-body aircraft and retired four older aircraft, with 16 more new aircraft scheduled to be delivered before the end of the financial year.

Emirates also expanded its global route network adding services to Bali, Multan, Orlando and Mashhad.
