This strong summer, helping it swing back into profit.

It forecasts a solid 2023 as well. It's expected that it will raise between €1.6 billion and €1.8 billion. Most of that money will be set aside to pay back the government for those Covid payments that were due to be posted. Underlying EBIT of €409 million for the 12 months through to the end of September.
