SIA JSC, the operator of Sheremetyevo International Airport, recorded revenue of 10.355 million rubles for the first six months of 2020, when air travel declined sharply worldwide due to the coronavirus pandemic. This was a decrease of 44.2% compared to the same period in 2019.
Aviation activities declined by 47.6%, and non-aviation activities declined by 39.1%. The income from concessions decreased by 18.9%. The growth in cost of sales was 19.8%, associated with an increase in maintenance and amortization costs of the new Terminal C and concession facilities.
Gross income for the period was 3,050 million rubles, which is 75.5% lower than for the same period in 2019. The decrease in revenue and negative exchange rate changes were the major factors that produced a net loss of 1,157 million rubles in the first half of the year.
