Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris SA - Groupe ADP, stated: "2018 first quarter revenue, including the full consolidation of TAV Airports, increased by 37.3%, to €965 million, driven by the international and European traffic dynamic, with a favourable impact on airport fees. Those will benefit from 1 April 2018 from the increase in tariffs by 2.125%. Retail activities growth keeps on being driven by the dynamism of bars and restaurants. Sales in airside shops per passenger is down, negatively impacted by strong Euro and important works in terminal 2E. Abroad, TAV Airports posted good results for 2018 first quarter with a strong growth in traffic.
