Athens International Airport, Greece’s busiest, said pretax profit surged 33 percent last year as its terminals handled record traffic.
Pretax profit rose to 125.7 million euros from 94.6 million euros a year earlier, the company said in a faxed statement today.
Passenger numbers rose 10 percent to 16.5 million travelers as airlines added flights and more people took vacations in Greece.
The airport, majority-owned by the Greek state and managed by German construction company Hochtief AG, may sell shares to the public under a government asset-disposal plan.
