Cargo play cements El Al’s Q4

HIGHER cargo revenue has helped El Al Israel Airlines (El Al) secure a healthy profit for the last three months of 2010.

El Al posted quarterly net profit of US$16.3 million compared with a loss of $29 million in the last three months of 2009 when the global financial crisis cut into cargo figures.
