Aeroflot’s net profit during the first 6 months of 2011 was $376,8 million in accordance with IFRS


Russian Aviaton » Tuesday September 27, 2011 15:58 MSK
The net profit of Aeroflot Group during the first 6 months of 2011 was $376,8 million in accordance with IFRS, which is $359,3 greater as compared to the same period in 2010, the airline reports. AEX.ru

The Group’s revenue has increased by 26,4% and reached $2,343.9 million. The revenues from transportation have increased by 21,3% to $1,928.3 million. The revenues have increased mostly due to increase of the scope of works completed by the Group in the first six months of 2011.

The Group’s operating costs have increased by 26,2% to $2,139.2 million. The increase of operating costs is caused by the increase of the scope of completed works and also by increase of aviation fuel price. Following the results of the first half of 2011 the Aeroflot Group has received an EBIT of $204,7 million, which is 28,7% more than in the same period of 2010.

The EBITDA was $330,9 million (+ 20,5% as compared to the first half of 2010). The EBITDA margin was 14,1%.

The main reasons for increase of net profit were the increase of scope of works and selling of shares in the subsidiaries and affiliates in the first half of 2011: Moscow insurance company (100% of registered capital), Sheremetyevo refueling enterprise (31% of registered capital), Deyt (50% of registered capital), Nordavia (100% of registered capital).

Aeroflot to resume flights to Mexico’s Cancun Oct 31

MOSCOW, October 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot will resume flight to Mexico’s Cancun on October 31.

Regular flight to the Mexican resort will be carried out by an Airbus A330-200 from the Sheremetyevo International Airport, Terminal D, once in ten days.
Aeroflot suspended flights to Cancun, one of the world’s top ten resorts, at the end of 1990s, mainly for economic reasons.

According to the air carrier, 15,000 Russian citizens visited Mexico in 2009 and around 40,000 in 2010.

“The opening of regular flights from Moscow to Cancun makes this resort more accessible for Russian citizens,” the company said in its statement.
Aeroflot is the country’s largest air carrier, where 51 percent stake is state-controlled.
