Auckland Airport: “The second half of the 2012 financial year has started well, particularly in terms of passenger volumes, with January 2012 notable for featuring the busiest week for international arrivals and departures ever recorded at Auckland Airport. At the beginning of the 2012 financial year, we outlined our expectations that the net profit after tax (excluding any fair value changes and other one-off items) would be in the NZD130 millions. We are firmly on track to meet the higher end of this guidance.” Source: Company statement, 29-Feb-2012.
