Auckland Airport has increased profit by 21 per cent on last year as it focuses on growing travel markets and invests in retail, property and infrastructure.

The national gateway reported a $215.9 million profit after tax for the year to June 30 on revenue of $475.8m up 6.1 per cent.

Shareholders will be paid a final dividend 7 cents a share up 12 per cent.

Total passenger movements were up 3.8 per cent to 15.1m, with international passengers up 5.1 per cent to 8.2m and domestic passengers up 2.2 per cent to 6.9m.

Auckland Airport chairman Sir Henry van der Heyden said revenue growth was achieved through strong performances in the company's aeronautical business as well as in its property and car parking operations.

The airport's 2015 underlying net profit was expected to be between $160m and $170m excluding any fair value changes and other one-off items, Henry said.
