Key points from our full report on airline financial performance in December-January

•The rise in worldwide airline share prices slowed as declines in crude oil and jet fuel prices paused;
•After falling more than 50% by the end of 2014, crude oil and jet fuel prices stabilized in January;
•Initial Q4 financial results show improvements continuing to be driven by US carriers;
•Passenger yields in the US show small year-end gains as fares in other regions fall further;
•Air travel growth remained strong in December and air freight demand sustained recent gains, despite developing
concerns over the health of the global economy;
•Growth in available seats accelerated in December, but is still below the pace of growth in demand, which should
support aircraft utilization rates;
•Passenger load factors trended improved in December, but air freight load factors lost ground on significant
growth in capacity in Asia Pacific.
