On the way to a healthy Austrian

We are continuously increasing our fuel efficiency:
In 2012, our fuel consumption has decreased to 3.98 liters per 100 passenger kilometers from 4.18 liters in the previous year − even though we transported more passengers. The airlines of the Lufthansa Group together produced a value of 4.06 liters per 100 passenger kilometers. This is an efficiency record. Compared to the car, the aircraft is in fact an environmentally-friendly means of transport.

"Fuel is our largest cost driver. If we use less fuel, we reduce costs. At the same time we lower emissions and protect the environment. We cannot influence our fuel consumption entirely. But by implementing specific measures, we can contribute a lot to efficiency. This year our savings goal amounts to 4 million euro. Many divisions throughout the company make an important contribution to this." Oliver Cantele Head of Operations Efficiency Team / DE  

Austrian Achieves Operating Result of EUR 25 Million in 2013

• Austrian Airlines returns to profitability after six years
• Strict cost management brings improvement of EUR 31 million
• Jaan Albrecht: "On the right path, but no turnaround yet"

The rigorous restructuring program implemented by the Austrian Airlines Group is clearly reflected in the business results for the year 2013: Austrian Airlines succeeded in posting an operating profit of EUR 25.1 million (2012: loss of EUR 6.0 million on an adjusted basis). In addition to strict cost management, the higher passenger load factor on the aircraft was the main factor contributing to Austrian Airlines’ return to profitability. The successful marketing of intercontinental flights also brought positive results. The year 2007 was the last time Austrian Airlines was in the black.

"Austrian Airlines has put the crisis behind it. We are well on track. Now the priority is to shape our future. This entails the modernization of our medium-haul fleet and expansion of the long-haul fleet", says Jaan Albrecht, Chief Executive Officer of Austrian Airlines.
