UAC delivered a strong financial performance in 2016. Its total revenue increased by 10.2%, from US$5,679.9 million in 2015 to US$6,258.6 million in 2016. This was primarily due to a 76.0% increase in the revenue on sales of aircraft components, and a 10.5% increase in the revenue earned on aircraft construction contracts during the review year. Strong financial performance helps the company maintain its position in the market and enables it to pursue its growth and expansion plans.
