Following the meeting of the Board of Directors held on the 22nd of February 2017, the Company announced that the Company’s profits for the year ended 31st December 2016 increased from €19.3 million to €21.0 million.
Increases in revenues were registered by both the Company’s aviation and non-aviation segments. The global sum of Group revenues for the year was €73,064,828, up from €66,965,843 in 2015. Aviation revenues, which grew by 10.9% to €51.5 million, are largely attributable to a new traffic milestone achieved with over 5 million guests welcomed at the airport last year.
With an increase of 5.1% to €21.6 million, the Company’s non-aviation segment also performed well, in line with its corporate strategy. A positive trend was registered across all revenue drivers within the retail and property portfolio, with an increase in contributions from SkyParks Business Centre and the airport’s retail outlets, VIP product, and parking.
The Earnings before Interest, Taxation Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) of the Group increased from €35.6 million to €40.0 million.
