Good developments for Avinor in first half of 2018
More passengers and increased commercial income contributed to an increase of 3.4 per cent in Avinor’s operating revenue in the second quarter. Profit after tax for the first six months comprised NOK 183 million.
“For the first half of the year Avinor has delivered secure and good operations, while at the same time continuing to reduce costs and increase operating revenues. This provides a solid base for the well-functioning aviation system in Norway,” says CEO Dag Falk-Petersen.
The Group’s operating income in the second quarter amounted to NOK 3,051 million, compared with NOK 2,950 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The Group’s profit after tax for the first half of the year was NOK 183 million, compared to minus NOK 230 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The change is primarily due to high one-off costs in the second quarter of 2017.
Anne Carine Tanum was elected the new chair of the board of Avinor AS at its annual general meeting on 13 June 2018.
On schedule with cost savings
The forecast savings due to the Group’s modernisation programme exceed the targets. The programme’s cost savings target is NOK 600 million per year from 2018 in relation to the Group’s previous financial long-term plan from 2013 (baseline). Although the programme’s goals are expected to be achieved by a good margin, work continues on cost-reducing measures and efficient operations.
High punctuality, but below targets
As at 30 June 2018, average punctuality and regularity for the past 12 months were 98 per cent and 83 per cent, respectively. These are good figures in an international context, although Avinor has set a higher target for punctuality. Measures to further improve punctuality are being reviewed together with the airlines and other stakeholders at the airports.
Outsourcing operation of Haugesund Airport
In December 2016, the Ministry of Transport and Communications decided to start work on outsourcing the operation of Haugesund Airport on a service concession. Following negotiations, it has been decided that Lufthavnutbygging AS and Widerøe Ground Handling AS will be responsible for the operation of the airport for 20 years from March 2019 via a newly established company.
No operation of Fagernes Airport
Operations at Fagernes Airport ceased on 1 July 2018. No local actors who want to take over operations have been put in place. As requested by the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Avinor will ensure that the airport can be operated commercially by potential actors for the next three years. Sporting aviation and possibly other activities will also be facilitated in the region.
Increased capacity at Oslo Airport
As a result of the increased volume of traffic to and from non-Schengen destinations, a decision has been made to expand terminal capacity at Oslo Airport. The project entails a 28,000 sq. m. extension of the east pier and new aeroplane stands. The target completion date is the first half of 2022.
On 14 August 2018, Avinor and Worldwide Flight Services signed a letter of intent concerning the operation of a new seafood centre for airfreight at Oslo Airport.
