TAV Airports sees net profit in 2018

Posted 6 August 2018 · Add Comment

TAV Airports Holding, Turkey’s global brand in airport operations, increased passengers 31% and served 67 million passengers. The company increased net profit 55% and reached EUR 93 million.

 

TAV Airports Holding Executive Board Member & CEO Sani Sener said: “Leadership in our sector requires leadership in investments, financial capabilities, airport management, engineering and design. It also requires leadership in service companies in duty-free, catering, ground handling and technology. Job creation and talent retention are also areas where leadership is required. This is something we have achieved.

We have invested in 15 airports that we operate. We also provide services in 63 other airports. All in all we are a global brand with operations in 20 countries and 78 airports. We are having a successful year in all our areas of leadership. We derive around 15% of our revenues from our international operations.

2018 is a year of records for most of the airports that we operate which are at all time highs in international passenger numbers. In the first six months of 2018, we achieved a 31% surge in our passenger numbers, thanks to strong growth in international traffic and addition of Antalya. We started operations at Antalya Airport in May 2018 and even excluding the inorganic contribution from Antalya we achieved a 16% passenger growth (like-for-like growth).

We have crowned the record passenger numbers with all time high financial results for the first half of 2018. Our revenue increased 8% and reached 550 million Euro. Our EBITDA increased 25% and reached 254 million Euro and our net income increased 55% and reached 93 million Euro.

Antalya Airport is the second largest airport in Turkey in terms of international passengers and has tremendous growth potential. Following the addition of Antalya Airport into our portfolio, we revised guidance as more than 30 percent growth in total TAV passengers, 8 to 10 percent growth in Istanbul Ataturk Airport international passengers, 11 to 13 percent growth in Istanbul Ataturk Airport international O&D passengers, 4 to 6 percent growth in consolidated revenue, 14 to 16 percent growth in EBITDA, significant double digit increase in net profit and around EUR 120 million in capital expenditures; subject to our traffic and FX assumptions, with the inclusion of Antalya Airport since May 2018 and assuming Istanbul Ataturk Airport will operate for the full year in 2018.

In the first half of 2018 we agreed with our partner Turkish Airlines to extend our partnership in TGS for 15 more years. With thıs extension both TGS and Havas will be clear beneficiaries of the traffic growth expected with the opening of the New Istanbul Airport.
