Auckland Airport today announced its financial results for the 12 months to 30 June 2022, including its second ever underlying loss.

The airport reported a total number of passengers decreased to 5.6 million, down 13%, as domestic passenger numbers decreased 27% to 4.3 million and international passenger numbers (including transits) increased 123% to 1.3 million.

Revenue was up 7% to $300.3 million and operating EBITDAFI was down 16% to $144.5 million.

Reported profit after tax was down 59% to $191.6 million and earnings per share was down 59% to 13.0 cents.

The airport also incurred a net underlying loss after tax of $11.6 million and a net underlying loss per share of 0.8 cents, with no final dividend to be paid.

With the gradual reopening of the border in the second half of the year, Auckland Airport focused on a range of other capital expenditure projects to take advantage of the low traffic environment, including progressing $82.4 million in works to enable development of a new purpose-built domestic facility.

The airport is now progressing its capital plan to build a stronger Auckland Airport, delivering on a world-class travel experience and fuelling its future success.
