In order to simplify the analyses, the six year period of 2001-2006 will be considered. Second, a financial ratio analysis will also be conducted in order to ascertain the profitability, working capital or efficiency, liquidity, and financial leverage of the company.

The report concludes with the identification of the airline’s financial strengths and weakness.
