Airports Fiji Limited today paid a dividend of $15million to government and anticipates more to be added on to this by the end of this year.
AFL chairman Faiz Khan says last year the company made a dividend of $7.5m and an interim dividend for the first six months of this year which amounts to $7.5m.
“This is a result of a major restructure of our revenues that we undertook about a year ago and that has come to fruition.”
Khan adds that it was a great achievement especially since they are also carrying out a lot of capital works at the same time.
Minister for Finance Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says it is pleasing to see that AFL is not only doing well but striving to stand on their own feet.
