 National airports operator AAI is expected to report an all-time high revenue of Rs 10,000 crore, with an estimated flat profit growth in the fiscal ended March 31 this year.

The estimated 8% growth in the topline which stood at Rs 9,285 crore in 2014-15, is driven by the surge in passenger traffic as well as aircraft movement, particularly from Ahmedabad and Leh airports, a senior AAI official said.

Of the 125 AAI airports, currently 95 are operational, with 70 of them having scheduled flights. “While the accounts are still being finalised, we estimate the revenue to touch an all-time high of Rs 10,000 crore in the last fiscal. The net profit during this period is also estimated at Rs 2,000 crore,” the AAI official said. The public sector firm had posted a net profit of Rs 1,959 crore in the April-March fiscal of 2014-15.

Attributing the estimated 8%  in topline to the surge in both passenger traffic and aircraft movement across airports, the official said, “Ahmedabad and Leh airports in particular fuelled this growth.”

“Growth in February was much more than our expectations where March numbers are being culled out,” the official said.
