Zurich benefits from Lufthansa's takeover of Swiss
Lufthansa’s takeover of Swiss in 2005, and the associated
integration of Swiss into the Star Alliance, had a "more than favourable"
impact on Zurich Airport’s performance in 2006. Passenger numbers for
the 12 months ended 31-Dec-06 rose strongly (+7.6% year-on-year), which led
to 5.0% and 3.9% increases in revenue and EBITDA, respectively. Net profit for
the period rose 48%. [261 words]
