A first: over one million visitors on the Jungfraujoch!

The Jungfrau Railway Group can look back on a successful year in terms of
visitor frequencies. For the first time, over one million visitors travelled to
Europe's highest-altitude railway station. The millionth guest arrived on the
Jungfraujoch shortly before 9.00 hr on 30 December 2015. Franziska Voigt from
Germany was making the trip with her colleague Elke Melitz and was personally
welcomed on arrival by Urs Kessler, CEO of Jungfrau Railways. Excursion traffic
to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe continued to benefit from rising demand from
Asia during the year under review. In 2015, 1,007,000 persons visited the
Jungfraujoch, an increase of 16.3 per cent on the previous year and thus the
best ever result in company history. The fact that the company has continued to
intensively cultivate the Asian market and strengthen the Jungfraujoch - Top of
Europe brand is clearly bearing fruit.

The brief onset of winter at the end of November 2015 gave way to mild, dry
weather in December. Because of the constant warm temperatures and little snow,
the Jungfrau Ski Region has had a difficult start to the 2015/2016 winter
season, the same as the previous year. Thanks to powerful snowmaking equipment
and the snowfall in late November, Jungfrau Railways was able to open numerous
facilities in the Kleine Scheidegg and First areas and offer good skiing
conditions. It was therefore possible to begin winter-sports operations some two
weeks earlier than in December 2014. The Jungfrau Ski Region is a joint product,
of which the Jungfrau Railway Group holds more than a 60% share. From the
beginning of the season to 2 January 2016, the Jungfrau Ski Region recorded
150,000 skier visits, equal to a drop of 3.8 per cent compared to the same
period last year. In a long-term comparison, the start of the last two winter
seasons, 2014 and 2015, were below average.

The other rail and cableways of the group achieved positive frequencies compared
to last year. The Harder Railway once again achieved a significant passenger
record with an increase of 18.3 per cent. The First Aerial Cableway recorded an
increase in passenger numbers of 2.5 per cent. The Mürren Rail & Cableway
transported 1.7 per cent more guests than in 2014.
