Avia Solutions Group Q1 2024 results: revenue grew by 26%, reaching €509M

Avia Solutions Group – the world’s largest ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance) provider – has announced its financial performance results for Q1 2024. The Group’s revenue grew by 26%, reaching €508.8 million. The growth was primarily driven by a significant increase in passenger flight volumes – the Group’s revenue from passenger aircraft ACMI services grew 2.3-fold, reaching €216 million.

The Group’s EBITDA stood at €11.9 million, while its net losses comprised €97.5 million, meeting the overall expectations for Q1. These results were mostly due to investment into fleet capacity and crew, in preparation for a record-breaking summer season, as well as to strategic expansion in new markets.

During the first quarter of this year, the Group expanded its fleet with 13 new aircraft, bringing the total to 171 passenger and 42 cargo aircraft. Even though, in the aviation industry, the first quarter of any given year is typically considered not as profitable, the Group’s entire fleet, which today encompasses 213 aircraft, has already been leased to major European and international airlines, including Lufthansa Group, Turkish Airlines, Wizz Air, TUI, IndiGo, among others.

“We are now fully prepared for the summer season, which we expect to break all previous records. The Group’s aviation services infrastructure and global scale give us a significant competitive advantage and the status of industry leaders,” said Jonas Janukenas, CEO of Avia Solutions Group.

Avia Solutions Group is consistently implementing its expansion strategy in Asia, Asia-Pacific, and South America, which enables it to efficiently manage seasonality in Europe by shifting aircraft from one region to another. Early in Q1 2024, the Group acquired the Australian airline Skytrans, and is planning to establish ACMI airlines in Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia later this year.

Based in Ireland, Avia Solutions Group operates in 68 countries around the world, and has offices in Lithuania, New York, Dubai, Dublin, and other cities around the globe. The Group consists of 100+ companies providing a wide range of aviation services like aircraft maintenance and repair (MRO), pilot and crew training, ground handling, and more. The Group’s team encompasses 12,000 highly qualified aviation professionals.
