Turkish Airlines’ quarterly loss more than doubles on higher costs

Turkish Airlines’ first-quarter losses more than doubled, hit by higher fuel prices and other costs. The Turkish flag carrier, which operates flights to 306 destinations in 124 countries, reported a loss of 1.25 billion lira or $229 million in the first quarter, compared with a loss of 314 million lira or $86 million in the same period a year earlier. Analysts said the loss was wider than an average forecast of a 662 million lira loss. That reflected higher oil prices due to currency volatility and increased unit costs due to staff and marketing expenses, analysts said.
