Schiphol Group: “Taking into account the one-off share in results of associates related to the JFK IAT transaction, Schiphol Group is increasing its profit projection to a net result for 2010 of approximately EUR 160 million (this was EUR 132 million). This is in spite of the negative impact of the airspace closures as a result of the volcanic ash cloud. This projection is based on effective cost control, in line with that of the past six months, and 1.5% to 2.0% growth in passenger numbers at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol for the whole of 2010,” Company statement.
