Earlier today saw United Airlines (NASDAQ: UAL) report it’s strong third-quarter financial results, highlighting what they believe is a “winning strategy” direction at present.
The airline believes that through the United Next strategy, this is what is helping to bolster the airline’s position in the market.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
United Airlines’ “Winning Strategy” Shows in Q3 Financials…
The airline’s capacity increased by 15.7% compared to the third quarter of last year, with total operating revenues up 12.5% at $14.5bn.
A net income of $1.1bn was reported, which has been helped by the 436 domestic markets on mainline aircraft being operated by United Airlines.
On top of this, their major international expansion into Asia, including services to Manilla, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei & Beijing have also cemented their position on the U.S-Asia stage.
Commenting on a successful third quarter was United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby:
“Thank you to our extraordinary United team who delivered a record-setting operational performance for our customers in August and September”.
“Our strategy to diversify our revenue streams, capitalize on growth opportunities and constantly innovate to enhance our products for our customers is paying off.”
“Our United Next strategy is working and we remain on track to hit our financial targets.”
All eyes will be on the carrier to see what the fourth-quarter will look like, as well as what the financial year for 2023 produces too.
