Last year's financial results of Narita Airport Corporation were the first deficit since privatization, with a final loss of more than 70 billion yen due to the impact of the new coronavirus.

According to the financial results of last year announced by Narita Airport Corporation on the 27th, sales decreased by 69.7% from the previous year to 71.8 billion yen, and the final profit and loss was 71.4 billion yen from the surplus of 24.4 billion yen in the previous year. The yen is in the red.

This is because the number of passengers on both international and domestic flights last year was only 7.8% of the previous year due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.

It is the first time since the privatization in 2004 that the final profit and loss of the Narita Airport Company's financial results will be in the red.

In addition, we anticipate a deficit of 67 billion yen this year, assuming that the effects of the spread of infection will continue.

Akihiko Tamura, president of Narita Airport Corporation, said at a press conference, "It is expected that it will take some time for air traffic demand to recover after vaccination progresses. We expect that international flights will gradually recover. "

On the other hand, President Tamura for the new plan of the three eyes of the runway, which has been promoted to the prospect of the completion of eight years later at Narita Airport is "necessary investments in anticipation of later recovery in demand should not defect so that we continue." I reiterated the idea of ​​proceeding as planned.
