China’s Big Three airlines – Air China, China Southern, and China Eastern – all have now reported their half-year 2023 results. The picture that emerges is that all three have significantly reduced their losses, but have some way to go until they are out of the woods of the pandemic. And there are concerns about how the Chinese domestic and international markets are developing.

Air China:

Air China was the last of the three to release its numbers and reported an RMB -4.094 billion net loss attributable to shareholders, compared to RMB -22.214 billion in the first six months of 2022. Revenues improved to RMB 59.613 billion from RMB 23.953 billion, which together with other income add up to a total income of RMB 63.683 billion versus RMB 25.400 billion last year.
