Aena S.A. has reached a net profit of 639.2 million euros January through September, representing 83.8% rise over the same period in 2014, as a result of business development and the reduction of debt and financial expenses.
Total revenues reported by Aena in the first nine months of 2015 increased to 2,689.7 million euros, an increase of 12.3% over 2014. Of these, the most outstanding is ordinary commercial revenue (inside and outside the terminal), which grew by 15% compared to the same period of 2014, reaching 687.8 million euros. Also noteworthy is the contribution to revenues from international operations, to which Luton Airport contributes 147.7 million euros.

Luton), well below the growth experienced in passenger traffic.
Aena experienced, in the first nine months of the year, a reduction in the consolidated net financial debt as a result of strong cash flow generation, net financial debt. On 30 September, net financial debt (1) totalled 9,523 million euros compared to 10,733 million euros at the close of 2014.
Thus, as regards the consolidated gross operating profit (EBITDA) (2), Aena obtained between January and September 2015, a total of 1,592.4 million euros, 11.6% more than in the first nine months of 2014.
This significant growth in the EBITDA is due to the consolidation of passenger traffic growth (+ 5.2% between January and September 2015), the growth in commercial revenues (15%), and the first-time consolidation of Luton Airport (50.6 million euros of EBITDA) and to the maintenance of cost efficiency.
