Consistently rising profits and as having a historically conservative business approach has enabled over 10 years of steadily increasing dividends. Current trends and their desire for future sustainability demand an adjustment now. Therefore they propose to pay a first interim dividend this year of 22p per ordinary share (2019: 34p) to be followed by further payments in March and July next year. This dividend will be paid on the 20 November 2020 to shareholders on the register on the 30 October 2020. This payment represents a sensible balance between prudence in uncertain times and fundamental confidence in the business as the economy returns to a new normal.

Early in the pandemic, the Air aprtner Board decided to suspend the declaration of dividends to shareholders to reflect the uncertain operating climate. Although that uncertainty persists, the Board considers it appropriate to recommence some payment now to recognise the importance of dividends to Air Partner's shareholders, many of whom are private investors. However, they believe it prudent to maintain the strength of the Group's balance sheet and to ensure that there are sufficient resources to fund future growth. Accordingly, the Board is recommending an interim dividend of 0.80p per share, down 55.6% from last year's 1.80p. The Board's objective is to establish a level of dividends that is sustainable, well covered by the Group's earnings, and that can be increased over time. The level of this interim dividend is consistent with this policy.
