Auckland Airport: “In the longer term, the aspirational goal is to grow international passengers at a rate significantly higher than the historical average. In the shorter term, passenger volume expectations are improving but still hard to forecast accurately…for the full 2010 financial year we now expect net profit after tax (excluding any fair value changes and other one-off items) to be in the range of NZD100 million to USD105 million, and capital expenditure to remain in the range of NZD60 million to USD65 million,” Company statement.
