A result which has been accompanied by significant investments which in 2018 reached a total of 31.5 million Euros. Over the last 5 financial years, the Group has invested over 170 million Euros. The activities carried out by SACBO have generated a revenue of 162.71 million, an increase of 24.27 million on the previous year (+17.5%) which closed with a revenue of 138.44 million. In examining the 2018 financial statements, the president of SACBO, Roberto Bruni, underlined the importance that the figures have in light of guaranteeing on the one hand the resources necessary to support the investments programmed for the adapting of the airport and service infrastructure, confirming the previously-assumed commitment to interventions for environmental mitigation, and on the other the distribution to the shareholders of the same dividend as last financial year. The continued production of profit - added Bruni - is to be considered the result of prudent management, which is seeing the expected benefits of the various airport services which have been planned to best respond to user requirements.
