Emirates profit nosedives 88%
by Dylan Bowman on Monday, 10 November 2008

PROFIT NOSEDIVE: Emirates has posted a 88 percent drop in profit for the six months to Sept. 30. (Supplied)
Dubai-based airline Emirates said on Monday profit plummeted 88 percent in the first six months of its current fiscal year due to record oil prices, which have sent the cost of fuel soaring.

Emirates, the largest Arab airline, posted net income of 284 million dirhams ($77 million) for the six months ending Sept. 30, down from 2.36 billion dirhams for the same period last year.

The airline said fuel costs more than doubled to 9.2 billion dirhams for the period. It said fuel costs were 1.7 billion dirhams higher than budgeted.

Emirates Group chairman and CEO Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum in a statement described the first half of the year as "very tough", but expected "a robust second half of the financial year" provided there was no further fallout from the current global financial crisis.

Operating revenues increased by 31 percent to 22.1 billion dirhams for the period, while passenger traffic was up 11 percent and cargo tonnage was up 13 percent, the airline said.

Emirates said its cash position on as of Sept. 30 was 8.4 billion dirhams, compared to 12.6 billion dirhams a year earlier.

Emirates currently has a fleet of 121 aircraft, including two Airbus A380 superjumbos. The airline flies to 100 cities worldwide.

haha nah we still made a profit and still had good growth in revenue. now that oil is down to $60 we're gonna kick ass this half of the year. but there has def been a change in the corporate culture. accountability goes down to a project level now as opposed to just department level.

Just out of interest, what are the disadvantages in telling the world that you're a state owned airline with heavily subsisided or even free fuel so the rest of the airlines can go nosedive over the Himalayas for all you care and that you look forward to buying those cheap 737's when they go bust, especially the American and European ones - Happy Credit Crunch..... can somone list a few of them? Cheers.

well the main disadvantage is you'd be shooting yourself in the foot for no reason especially since you aren't a subsidized airline

Dubai plans Terminal 4

November 12, 2008

While the world's premier financial institutions and banking majors may have crash landed on the back of a global economic meltdown, Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dubai Airports, was in take-off mode as far as airport expansion plans go.

Speaking to a business gathering at Capitol Club, Dubai International Financial Centre yesterday, Griffiths drew out the vision for Dubai Airports, putting some serious number crunching into context, by underlining that the airport business is always "a long-term business investment".

On the Dubai Airports' radar for the near future is a Terminal 4 to go with terminals 1, 2 and 3, apart from more extensions to the latter.

"It won't come as a surprise to know that not only have we got concourse three rising out of the ground already, but we are already planning Terminal 4," Griffith said.

"We have Dh290 million that will be spent over the next two years on terminals 1, 2 and 3, making sure they are running to full capacity," Griffiths said, adding, "We aim to service at least 70 to 80 million people per year."

About Dubai World Central's place in all this expansion, Griffith said Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central in Jebel Ali "which will start operations in June 2009, would only take cargo initially and then by October would start taking passengers. Then too, it would only service about eight-nine million passengers in its initial years."

Griffith said a business intelligence group is examining the market dynamics for both airports to aid planning and forecasting that in turn will have implications for future capacity and development of core facilities to handle growth.

good post bizzy.
just doesnt make sense though. that would be more than a combined 190-200million annaul pax capacity for both airports in the next 15 years. i really always thought terminal 3 was something of a medium term capacity solution for emirates until it shifted to JXB. even Emirates management have said they will eventually have to move out to JXB.

really perplexing considering the terminal 3-EGHQ combination is really fantastic. i cant see them building another building and shifting their HQ to JXB since they just spent so much money on the current development.

Maybe they are thinking of postponing the Al Maktoum project (or part of it)

They might have decided to go slow with the JXB project (maybe just leave it for only flyDubai flights).....that was also mentioned in a British newspaper......

Besides I hear Abu dhabi is redeveloping/expanding Al Ain to be the second airport for Abu dhabi city with focus on low cost carriers...plus there is a new regional airport coming up in Jebel Dhanna-Ruwais area.....I won't be surprised if they (Etihad and/or Abu dhabi Government) announce a low cost carrier soon!!
