    Vienna (ots Ad hoc-Service) -      

    The Flughafen Wien Group ended the First Quarter of 2000 with excellent results. Operating profit rose by 19.6% to ATS 309 million (EUR 22.5 mill.), supported by 4.9% higher operating income and 0.1% lower operating expenses. Profit on ordinary activities rose by 25.3% to ATS 376 million (EUR 27.3 mill.), and net profit for the period increased by 27.4% to ATS 253 million (EUR 18.4 mill.). These results have been achieved in the light of a number of unusual seasonal factors.

    Aviation turnover increased by 4.7% to ATS 737 million (EUR 53.5 mill.) following solid growth in traffic, but non-aviation turnover remained at ATS 293 million (EUR 21.3 mill.). Income from duty-free shopping reduced and revenue from infrastructure services decreased after lower purchase prices for electricity and communications were passed on to customers.

    12% INCREASE IN PASSENGERS DURING APRIL

    The late Easter, a key factor which affects passenger air travel, led to an increase of 12.3% in the number of passengers. Charter traffic rose by a strong 27.4%, with the Turkish vacation capital, Antalya, registering an increase of more than 400%. During April flight movements and maximum take-off weight increased by 9.6% and 8.5%, respectively, and cargo rose by a solid 16.2%.

    From January to April, flight movements increased by 7.3%, maximum take-off weight by 5.6% and the number of passengers by 4.7%. Cargo rose by an unusually strong 16.9%.
