Company Watch - CSA Czech Airlines.
CSA Czech Airlines President Radomir Lasak this week reported half-year losses of CZK773 million ($35.2 million), widened from a CZK240 million loss in the first six months of 2005 but CZK20 million less than forecast, the CTK Czech News Agency reported. The carrier expects a full-year loss similar to the CZK496 million suffered last year but intends to return to the black in 2008. Revenues rose 8.9% to CZK 10.9 billion and costs increased 11.3% over the year-ago semester to CZK11.5 billion as the number of passengers climbed 6% to 2.5 million. Aug 24, 2006
CSA Czech Airlines unveiled its OK 06-08 restructuring program two months ago calling for elimination of 10%-20% of its payroll, or up to 1,000 employees. Lasak told CTK that 224 staff members have accepted a buyout so far and another 150 are expected to follow soon. The airline expects to save CZK150-CZK200 million through its turnaround measures this year and CZK500 million next year. Aug 24, 2006
