Net Loss of $845,000 in 2020 Versus Net Income of $556,000 in 2019

New York, NY, Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saker Aviation Services, Inc. (OTCQB:SKAS), an aviation services company specializing in ground-based services to the general aviation marketplace, today announced its financial results for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Revenue in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 of $2,833,174, was down 67.1 percent from $8,618,883 in the nine months ended September 30, 2019.  Net loss in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 of $844,711, was down $1,401,118 as compared to net income of $556,407 in the same period in 2019. 

"As in the second quarter, the driving factor behind the adverse year-over-year comparison is the COVID-19 pandemic." stated Ron Ricciardi, the Company's president & CEO.  "Continuing domestic traveler restrictions, along with ongoing international flight bans, have combined to depress tourist activity in New York City.  While air tours resumed during the summer, in connection with the City achieving a Phase Four level of re-opening, passenger demand has understandably been underwhelming.  We are pleased that the City has been open to addressing operating costs in various ways, and those discussions continue at the time of this writing.  We nonetheless anticipate that these factors will negatively influence financial results in upcoming quarters in 2020 and 2021," concluded Mr. Ricciardi.
