Revenue in the Catering segment rose by 2.2 per cent in the financial year (adjusted for exchange rates: +4.9 per cent) to EUR 2.3bn. This is largely a reflection of higher passenger numbers. External revenue rose by 1.3 per cent to EUR 1.7bn and internal revenue by 5.3 per cent to EUR 561m. Changes in the group of consolidated companies delivered an additional revenue contribution of EUR 14m compared with the previous year.
Other operating income fell by EUR 9m to EUR 58m compared with the same period a year ago. This was largely the result of lower exchange rate gains. Overall, total operating revenue improved by 1.8 per cent to EUR 2.4bn.
