Revenues from the public company Aeroportos de Moçambique dropped from 3.5 billion meticais (€51 million) in 2019 to 1.5 billion meticais (€22 million) in 2021, the company’s president announced.
“Our company, in 2019, had revenues of around 3.5 billion meticais. These revenues, in 2020, dropped to 1.5 billion meticais and, even with the slight recovery seen in 2021, revenues [last year] remained unchanged at 1.5 billion meticais,” Américo Muchanga explained.
That official was speaking to the media moments after a meeting of the Planning and Budget Commission of the Assembly of the Republic, which yesterday carried out a working visit to the facilities of Mozambique Airports.
Among the airports that brought the least revenue to the company, Muchanga highlighted Lichinga and Tete in central Mozambique, as well as Inhambane, in the south of the country.
For the company president, despite the negative numbers, the end of the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the revitalisation of tourism sector could open a new chapter.
“Each time the country opens up to travel, tourism and business, there is always a positive message for civil aviation,” Muchanga concluded.
