Interesting and knowledgeable blog from Egide Thein on how the Cargolux crisis will affect Luxembourg as it approaches elections…”We had some quiet moments around Cargolux over the past year. Last year it officially booked a profit, which is encouraging, even if put into perspective, it might be a short-lived blessing that was based on lower fuel costs. In any case the profit rate was only about 2.5%. It is difficult in the air cargo business to make a profit at all. That’s why the government has to care when in Luxembourg one company, CV, is a key activity. Considering gross revenue, the margins are not very comfortable in case markets turn down, or someone comes along spoiling the party. But it is nice for now to show positive results. This week however put Cargolux again in the news.”
