First, the carrier has announced a net loss of a net loss of €5.44 million for 2017, a significant reversal from its profit of €3.2 million in 2016. This number came despite a 1.7% increase in revenue, to €159.2 million, and is being blamed on a 7.8% in operating expenses, mainly due to high fuel prices. Adria's CEO, Holger Kowarsch, who took over as the company's manager in February of this year, remained optimistic that the firm would be able to navigate the changing market conditions, and soon return to profit.
