Asky Airlines recorded $4 million net profit in 2015
Airlines made a $4million net profit in the 2015 fiscal year. The Airlines becomes the first in the West and Central Africa region to attain this historical milestone.
« This remarkable result validates the success of our business strategy; the commitment and hard work of my colleagues, and the exemplary pan-African strategic partnership with Ethiopian Airlines. Despite the daunting challenges of the operating environment in West and Central Africa characterized by much higher operating costs than in other regions and the decline in travel demand due economic slowdown triggered by a sharp fall in commodity prices, we were able to successfully navigate thru these difficulties and attain a historical result.
