Results included a write-back of tax provision of $3.1 million arising from a change in the tax rules relating to an overseas associated company.

Revenue grew by $63 million or 5.7% to $1,169.9 million. This was primarily contributed by higher fleet management programme revenue with an increase in fleet size, more airframe and component overhaul work and a cabin interior reconfiguration project for four B777-300.
Expenditure at $1,040.3 million was $69.1 million or 7.1% higher, mainly due to higher subcontract and staff costs to support the increase in workload.
