Foreign exchange losses mainly consist of losses from differences between the exchange rate on the transaction date (monthly average rate), and the rate at the time of payment (spot rate) as well as translation losses from measurement at the exchange rate on the balance sheet date, see “Note 6”.

Losses from current financial investments include realised losses on the disposal of current securities (EUR 31m) and write-downs on current securities (EUR 32m) recognised in profit or loss.

Losses of EUR 6m were incurred on the disposal of property, plant and equipment in the course of selling one Boeing 737-300, two Canadair Regional Jet 200s and one ATR 42-500.
