TRADING UPDATE

 

Following the announcement made by Air Partner, the global aviation services group, on 17 December 2021, the Company is pleased to report a further positive update on trading for the 12 months to 31 January 2022.

 

As a result of continued strong customer demand throughout December, the Board of Air Partner now expects that underlying profit before tax for the 12 months to 31 January 2022 will be materially ahead of market expectations at the time of the December 2021 trading update. December's performance has again been driven by high levels of Freight bookings, notably for the continued transportation of vaccines.

 

The Group's cash position remains strong with net cash of £12.9m as of 31 December 2021 (31 July 2021: £9.8m), excluding both customers' segregated JetCard deposits and a £1.4m provision for deferred consideration and other items relating to the acquisition of Kenyon International Emergency Services Inc. 

 

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 as it forms part of domestic law of the United Kingdom by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, as amended. The person responsible for arranging for the release of this announcement on behalf of the Company is Joanne Estell, CFO.
