IRELAND. Aer Rianta International (ARI) and parent DAA revealed annual results today, with ARI profits falling from €29.4 million to €18.1 million year-on-year. The decline was mainly because the business had benefited in 2013 from the one-off impact of the sale of its operations in Russia and Ukraine. Against this, like-for-like profits at ARI’s international locations increased by +50% last year, while sales at continuing locations grew by +10%, and most operations delivered double digit sales growth. Given this performance, ARI remains “ahead of schedule” in its plan to double profits, Chief Executive Jack MacGowan tells The Moodie Report.
