Commercial businesses and cost control underpin 'solid' annual result at Brussels


Belgium's Brussels Airport has reported financial results for 4Q08 to 31-Dec-08 and for the 12 months ended 31-Dec-08. EBITDA for the full year increased by 9.5% to EUR223 million. The result was driven not so much by aeronautical growth, which declined by almost 7% in the final quarter, as by retail and car parking revenues, in tandem with strict cost control measures.
