Austrian Airlines Reports Earnings Results for the First Nine Months of 2016

Austrian Airlines generated earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of EUR 84 million in the first nine months of the current 2016 financial year. This comprises a year-on-year increase of 38% from EUR 61 million in 2015. Adjusted EBIT, the indicator relevant for the company’s earnings forecast which also includes book gains from aircraft sales amongst other factors, rose 30% or EUR 18 million to EUR 79 million in the first three quarters of 2016 compared to EUR 61 million a year ago. In particular, the improvements in the airline’s performance can be attributed to lower jet fuel costs as well as a positive one-off effect related to the conclusion of a long-term lease agreement with Vienna International Airport. Total operating revenues in the same period increased by 3% or EUR 43 million to EUR 1,748 million from EUR 1,705 million a year ago. The main reason for this development was the expansion of bilateral flight traffic to Germany. Revenue in the first three quarters of 2016 amounted to EUR 1,637 million, up 3% from the comparable figure as of September 30, 2015.
