This year we will increase traffic and revenues

Aerodrom Ljubljana is planning 11% growth in the number of passengers served, 13% growth in aircraft movements and 17% growth in freight carried.

In 2007 a total of 1,524,028 passengers passed through Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, there were 46,517 aircraft movements and transported 21,717 tonnes of cargo. There were 14.2% more passengers compared to 2006, 13.5% more aircraft movements and 42% more cargo. We will continue actively marketing services to acquire new passengers on our target markets of Italy and Austria, as well as acquiring new connections, primarily with the markets of Germany, Spain, England and Scandinavia.

The growth in transport will be matched by growth in revenues from the sale of services, which will exceed the growth in business expenses. In 2008 we will continue with our intense investment cycle and increasing airport capacity. Competition from airports in the region does not allow any significant increase in prices, so the growth in revenues will be closely linked to increased traffic volume.

The planned operating profit in 2008 will remain the same as the planned level for 2007 for the reasons set out above. The pre-tax profit should also remain at the same level as the last year.

This year we will invest 28.6 million euros in buildings, equipment to support activities and computer equipment. This will increase airport infrastructure capacity and improve service quality. The investment principal will be financed from own funds.
