We now operate the youngest and cleanest aircraft fleet in Europe and in our 9th year we will, once more, enjoy double digit growth, which is clearly above average among European airlines in 2012. In the financial year ended 31 March, we grew passenger traffic by 15%and registered a record net profit.
