Australian Infrastructure Fund: “The growth in passenger numbers at the Australian airports, which comprise 81.7% of the AIX portfolio, is expected to continue, with a number of the airports in the portfolio planning to significantly expand their facilities to cater for this growth. As noted above, a number of airports have already completed, or are in the process of completing, significant expansions. In Europe, the economic conditions post GFC remain difficult, with austerity measures in place in most European states, including Greece and Germany. We remain, however, cautiously optimistic that the European airports in which AIX invests, and which comprise 12.5% of the portfolio, will produce a solid performance in the years ahead,” Company statement.
