China’s stable economic development and high urbanization rate drove sustainable growth of the country’s aviation market.
TravelSky Technology Limited (“TravelSky”), a leading provider of information technology solutions for China’s aviation and travel industries, announced its unaudited interim results for six months ended 30 June 2011.
For the first half of 2011, TravelSky recorded satisfactory growth in both revenue and net profit. The Group’s revenue achieved RMB1,695.1 million, representing an increase of 16.7% as compared with the same period in 2010. Due to the stringent control of operating costs amidst revenue growth, the Group achieved a profit before tax of RMB 675.2 million, a rise of 18.0%. Profit attributable to equity holders of the Company was RMB 557.5 million. The basic and diluted earnings per share of the Group were RMB 0.19, according to a Travelsky report.
Mr Xu Qiang, Chairman of TravelSky said, “In the first half of 2011, China’s stable economic development and high urbanization rate were the driving force behind the sustainable growth of aviation market in PRC, while a number of factors, such as slow recovery in developed economies which led to lower external demand, impact of the “March 11” earthquake in Japan, geopolitical turmoil in some regions, soaring oil prices and rapidly expanding high-speed rail network, had slowed down the growth pace of the aviation market in PRC. The Group carefully studied the situation, optimized resources allocation, focused on market research and service improvement, ensured a safe and stable operation of production, and eventually realized a smooth development in its core business and maintained a steady growth in its operating results."
