Property boosts Schiphol results

The sale of an office block in Eindhoven and the rising value of property at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport boosted the first half-year net profit of the Schiphol Group 62% to €142.8m compared with a year earlier.

Turnover was up 11% to €541.4m, the company announced on Thursday.
The number of passengers using the group’s airports at Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Eindhoven rose 4.7% to 23.6 million in the first six months.
However stricter rules on carrying liquids meant spending at airport shops was down to an average purchase of €16.55, compared with €17.09 last year.
