TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s biggest air carrier, ANA Holdings Inc (9202.T), reported on Wednesday an operating loss of 159 billion yen ($1.51 billion) for the first quarter from April to June, but offered no annual forecast, citing demand uncertainty over the coronavirus pandemic.
The loss compared with a year-earlier profit of 16.1 billion yen (118.58 million pounds). First-quarter revenue plunged 76% to 121.6 billion yen.
Like other airlines around the world, ANA has been hammered by a collapse in air travel as the pandemic forced many countries to impose international and domestic restrictions.
