A company spokesperson said that "a weaker won drove up the value of dollar-denominated debts, which left the company with foreign exchange translation losses worth $ 136 billion won [in the second quarter]."
With regards to profit, Korea's second largest air freight company made an operational profit of $ 128.48 billion with sales rising up to 11 percent.
"Increased outbound demand on long-haul routes to Europe and the U.S. decreased jet fuel proces helped buoy the second-quarter operating profit."
