Chunga Air Markets Update @ 11/05
Chunga Air management are a little disappointed with the recent drop in our Credit Rating from A- to B, Mgmt do not agree with the rating agency outlook for the company.
Costs are inline with what is expected from an Airline or our size, we are constantly looking at way to cut costs and provide shareholder value.
We have dropped our debt ration, by paying back over 15mil from our current loan book.
We have taken delivery of additional aircraft that have allowed us to upgrade certain European routes, and increase our foothold in the US market.
Over all mgmt are delighted with the progress of the company, and are confident of the mid to long term plans that have been approved for the company.

Chunga International Fleet rationalisation;
The fleet co-ordinators have made the decisions to dispose of and return to leasers all E170, E175, Atr72 and Dash8’s, the main reason being is the seat capacity of same does not fit it with our future route development, we are to concentrate on the A220 & EMB190/5 fleets for regional flights.
We are to use A320 family (ceo and neo) for trans continental routes/
