Aeroports De Paris Full-Year Revenue Up

Aeroports de Paris, the operator of the French capital's Charles de Gaulle airport, said Wednesday that full-year revenue rose 8.1% as the company benefited from rising passenger numbers.

Sales for the year through Dec. 31 rose to 2.08 billion euros ($2.7 billion) from 1.92 billion euros in 2005, the company said in a statement.

Passenger traffic during the period rose 4.8% to 82.5 million. At Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport traffic rose 5.7% to 56.8 million passengers and 3.1% to 25.6 million passengers at Paris-Orly airport.

"The solid revenue growth in full-year 2006 reflects the attractiveness of our airports and the group's efforts to create value from passenger traffic growth," said Chief Executive Pierre Graff. "Aeroports de Paris ranked No. 1 in traffic growth among the main European airports."

Aeroports de Paris will publish full-year earnings on March 15.

The company's shares dipped 0.1% to 65.10 euros ($84.56) on Euronext.
