The number of aircraft assisted by HungaroControl, Hungary’s air traffic control firm, in the country’s airspace was up by 11.6% last year as compared to the preceding year, reaching 755,400, the company said yesterday according to reports.
According to the firm, numbers grew chiefly due to more overflight activity generated by the conflict in Ukraine and the opening of high altitude air corridors over Kosovo, Hungarian news agency MTI reported. Including the 67,400 aircraft using airspace over Kosovo, HungaroControl helped with the navigation of more than 822,800 aircraft, MTI reported.
The company’s revenue was up 9% last year as compared to the previous year, reaching HUF 35 billion. Pre-tax profit of the company was HUF 5.6 bln while net profit came to HUF 4.1 bln.
Take-offs and landings at Budapestʼs Liszt Ferenc International Airport were up by more than 6%, MTI added.
