Hangar8 plc, which recently completed a flotation on
the stock market, has posted a first half year operating profit of £0.3

Financial highlights include; total group revenue for
the six months to the end of October rising 43% to £7.2 million and charter
revenues increased 52% to £6 million; gross margin percentage up 7% to 19% and
current cash at the bank stood at £1.2 million. 

Group Chairman Nigel Payne commented:

admission to AIM. Notwithstanding this we maintained our focus on operations
increasing the number of aircraft in our fleet and scale throughout the
business. As a result growth in revenue from both charter and management
activities has been delivered at a lower unit cost thereby increasing
profitability. We continue to see an exciting future for Hangar8 which we
look forward to with confidence.”
