“Flughafen Wien AG is investing heavily in future growth – CAPEX of over € 200 million in 2024”
“The ongoing desire to travel, successful business location projects, a positive financial result and a high level of cost discipline contributed to a significant improvement in revenue and earnings of Flughafen Wien AG in Q1/2024. We anticipate future growth, which is why we are making massive investments to the amount of over € 200 million in 2024, a figure which will increase in the coming years. As a debt-free company, we can finance these investments e.g., the Southern Expansion terminal project, expansion of photovoltaic facilities by 13 MW and a fast electric charging station, from our own cash flow without incurring any new debt. Innovative business location projects such as Enpulsion, an Austrian company producing satellite propulsion engines, and the European Space Agency, are pointing the right way into the future,” states an optimistic Dr. Günther Ofner, joint CEO and CFO of Flughafen Wien AG.
