Vilnius International Airport (VIA) reached the profit of LTL 0.8 million over the period of nine months of 2012. Financial performance of the company exceeds the planned performance by LTL 1.7 million.
“Increasing number of passengers leads to new routes, which consequently has a positive impact on the growth of flights. More flights means more revenue and more expenditure, therefore, to ensure profitable performance of the airport, cost control must be given greater attention. Vilnius Airport, having the lowest fees in the Baltic States, increased its revenue and controlled expenditure in such a way that allowed generating profit over the period of nine months of 2012,” – states Director General of VIA Tomas Vaišvila.
First three quarters of 2011 brought revenue of LTL 36.6 million to Vilnius Airport. The same targets were set for 2012; however, the result was 4.6 per cent better.
