EasyJet reports demand still strong

Extracts from this document...


Coursework 1 EasyJet reports demand still strong This year, oil prices is affecting negatively EasyJet and other airlines, since they cannot make a profit if the oil price stays at current levels. Strong demand is the only positive side of the unprecedent rise in costs due to the high prices of oil, $140 a barrel, which could lead to a loss of nearly 6$ billion this year. Those airlines which will be in the market this summer will have a very high revenue and costs because of the rise of petrol, which will lead to a very low profit. In September, when the peak summer season has finished, the revenue will dicrease drastically, as a result, the profit will turn negative. ...read more.

Also as they lower their costs, they woun't need to increase their prices to cover the costs, as a result EasyJet will have a higher demand because of low prices, and will continue growing. In conclusion throughout this analysis I understood the importance of having low costs in a company, and the difficult problems that most airlines are having with oil. Also I realise that the summer seasons are very helpful for airlines, but now a days, even high revenues in summer vacations can't afford extremely high costs of companies, which are centralized in oil. EasyJet has found a little solution to this problem, which consists in lowering by a low percent the airplanes velocity, so that costs care lowered. ?? ?? ?? ??
