Despite exceptional charges, the annual profit for 2008 is CHF 21 million and thus on a par with the record year of 2007. The key figures are as follows:

At the end of February, Jungfrau Railways recorded a total reduction of 13,700 visitors (-30.2%) in the Jungfraujoch business segment. Visitor numbers are thus similar to those of 2005 and 2006. However, only about 5% of the total annual number of visitors is transported in these two months. The two peak-season months of July and August 2009 will have a significant effect on the overall result.
