Airbus unit plans derivatives trading to manage ticket price volatility

Airbus SE's new venture in the U.K. plans to launch financial instruments and infrastructure aimed at helping the airline industry in managing risks to revenue such as ticket price volatility.

Skytra, a London-based subsidiary of Airbus, will offer financial futures and options contracts on a regulated derivatives trading venue currently in development, the airplane maker said Jan. 20.

The contracts will be based on newly developed global and regional indexes that track daily changes in airline ticket prices caused by external factors including political and economic uncertainty and changes in demand and supply.

Airbus noted that there are no existing instruments enabling airlines to effectively manage air travel revenue volatility. This makes airlines "financially vulnerable," affecting their long-term plans and investments, the company added.

Skytra aims to roll out its air travel indexes in late 2020, pending approval from the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, Airbus said.
