2007 PERFORMANCE
Operating Activities
2007 was marked by further expansion of the company, with the arrival of a new Airbus
310-300 aircraft, in April.
New routes such as Terceira – Boston, Terceira – Oakland, Terceira – Oporto, Ponta Delgada
– Dublin and other charter operations to the Caribbean, Brazil, Sal and Porto Santo were
added to the existing network.
Overall, 641 more commercial flights were operated and 82,226 more passengers were carried
compared with the previous year. However, the market did not react in the same proportion
as the offer generated, and there was a fall of two percentage points in the load factor,
compared with 2006.

Network
Scheduled Domestic
There were two small changes in the scheduled domestic network compared with the
previous year:
1) the Funchal – Oporto – Funchal route was discontinued from 24 January 2007;
2) during the period from 21 June to 30 August 2007 a new route was operated, Terceira
– Oporto – Terceira, outside public service obligations.
Otherwise, the same network pattern and operation rules were maintained, under the
public service obligations and under a code-share arrangement with TAP Portugal, as
was already the case in 2006.

Among European routes, the destinations Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Madrid
were maintained. In the case of London, an additional weekly flight during the period from
June to September was introduced. The city of Dublin was added to SATA Internacional's
map of scheduled routes, from Ponta Delgada, with a weekly flight during the IATA summer
season. The Funchal – Zurich – Funchal route was discontinued at the end of the previous
year and replaced by Funchal – Paris – Funchal, from the IATA summer season 2007,
with great success.
Overall, there was a significant increase in supply, but with modest results in terms of
demand generated.

the French Provinces, the island of Jersey and Dublin were maintained, with connections
between Faro and Dublin during the summer. These operations were joined by two new
routes: Lisbon – Sal – Lisbon, on an annual basis and reinforced in the high season, and

Lisbon – Porto Santo – Lisbon, during the IATA summer season. In the Spring, there were
a weekly operation, Ponta Delgada – Vienna – Ponta Delgada.
Long-haul flights included the continuation of operation between Lisbon and Punta Cana,
reinforced during the high season with two more connections, one to Punta Cana and
the other to Samaná, also in the Dominican Republic. The Brazilian northeast, in particular
the rotation between Porto Seguro and Salvador, from Lisbon, began to operate all year
round. In comparison with the previous year, charter operations also reported a significant
increase in activity, although the load factor recorded a fall of 5 percentage points.

Commercial Activities
Continuing to pursue its expansion policy, SATA Internacional launched the scheduled
routes Ponta Delgada/Dublin/Ponta Delgada and Funchal/Paris/Funchal.
In the second case, it was a weekly flight throughout the year. In the case of Ponta
Delgada/Dublin/Ponta Delgada, it was a weekly flight, but only during the IATA summer
season.
On the Funchal/Paris route the results were positive, suggesting a consolidation of the
Company's position in the short term.
Aircraft Handling Activities
Self-Handling – Coordination Lisbon/Funchal/Oporto
The number of self-handled flights (supervision) was 4,987 departures, which corresponds
to growth of 34.4% (including SATA Air Açores flights from Funchal):

Training
Various training initiatives were implemented:
-
Training at IATA on components for Apron, Dangerous Goods and Cargo Rates, in
order to permit IATA certification.
-
Continuation of internal training for knowledge consolidation and refreshment,in order
to contain costs, but including mandatory training in accordance with JAR OPS, IATA
and new National regulations.
-
Training on Dangerous Goods in accordance with JAR OPS regulations
-
Initial training for contract workers.
Hiring of Permanent Staff
Staff were hired in the summer at some stopovers, to supplement the winter season staff.
Maintenance Activities
2007 was another year of growth in the SATA Internacional fleet: the aircraft CS-TKN
(MSN: 624) was phased in (April). This aircraft is equipped with 2 Pratt and Whitney
PW4156A-1C engines. As these engines are from a different manufacturer to those in
SATA Internacional's remaining A310 fleet, the Company itself and its line engineers were
required to be certified in this type of engine, and this certification took place in stages
throughout 2007.
In addition to this activity, the following events occurred during 2007:
* ‘C’ Inspections by the maintenance Company hired of following aircraft:

Flight Operations
According to an overall analysis of 2007, the planned commercial network was successfully
fulfilled in general. Nevertheless, with the network proposed, similar to that of 2006, this
Department continued to experience crew planning problems, due essentially to staggered
departures and arrivals between the airports of Oporto, Ponta Delgada and Terceira.
To satisfy the increase in in-flight services in the IATA summer season, 50 new cabin crew
members were hired.
Following the commencement of the AIMS, a positive contribution was made to shared
management in the planning of Crews with Sales Department.
Quality and Security
In order to offer a superior standard of service, in 2007 SATA Internacional invested in the
area of quality and security.

Quality Management Bureau
In February 2005, a Quality Management Bureau was set up for the General Directorate
of Operations, with 2 qualified engineers from the Ponta Delgada and Terceira stopovers
being assigned to, with advice from an external consultant, implement the new Project.
Awareness-raising and training activities for various groups within the Company, to identify
and describe existing processes and their interactions, as well as the creation of various
manuals, characterised the activities of this bureau over the last year.
Security Quality Activities
In compliance with the provisions of the National Civil Aviation Security Quality Control
Programme (PNCQSAC) and with Chapter 16 of the SATA Air Açores and SATA Internacional
Security Manuals, it is reported that, in 2007, this Security Bureau monitored the security
quality, as well as security training, which reveals the growing role of this area in the
operations of the two SATA Group airlines.
The initiatives that involved the various members of the security bureau are summarised
under security, auditing and training activities.
Human Resources
… growth of 28% in staff numbers in the last 4 years …
SATA Internacional, on 31 December 2007, had 527 employees, 11% more than in the
previous year, and of these 42.3% are Ground Staff and 67.7% are Plane Staff (223 cabin
crew and 81 engineers). The share of graduates in the company structure was 23.34%.
The average age remained close to 34.

2007 PERFORMANCE
SATA Internacional Recruitment Policy maintains the need to hire staff on fixed-term
contracts to respond to the seasonality of the company's activity.
In 2007 there was a considerable rise of 70% in the number of temporary staff, justified
by the need to reinforce, during the IATA summer season, the crew base in Ponta Delgada,
Lisbon and Funchal, with the seasonal recruitment of 76 cabin crew members. 23 operators
were also hired for the Call Centre.
However, there has been a significant increase of 40% in the number of contracts without
term in the last 4 years (information from 31 December), increasing 6% in 2007 compared
with 2006.

2007 PERFORMANCE
In 2007, SATA Internacional organised 9 selection procedures (3 procedures in 2006),
involving a total of 473 applicants (114 applicants in 2006). 116 trainees resulted from
these procedures (43 trainees in 2006), and € 51,447 were invested in initial training. This
significant increase, compared with 2006, is justified by the need to implement 2 selection
procedures for the Call Centre that involved a total of 145 applicants, of whom 32 were
selected for Initial training and 23 were hired. 3 selection procedures for cabin crew were
held, to be based at Ponta Delgada, Lisbon and Funchal, involving a total of 278 applicants,
of which 88 were selected for training and 76 were hired.
Vocational Training
In its ongoing effort to maximise the efficiency of its human resources through the acquisition
of knowledge and vocational skills, the company trained 1,532 employees in 2007, holding
336 training courses (22% more than in 2006), totalling almost 27,025 hours (44% more
than in 2006). This increase occurred mainly in the area of Flight Operations.
Since 2004 there has been a steady fall in training costs (50% less in 2006 compared
with 2003). However, in 2007, justified by the increase of 20% in training courses compared
with 2006, there has been a significant increase in Training costs of 71% compared with
2006.

Due to a consolidated practice of compliance with standards and legislation, the Flight
Operations Division (DOV) and Continuous Airworthiness Division (DCA) are the two areas
with the most significant investment in training, the DOV being responsible for 80% of
total investment in training. To justify part of the increase in values in 2007, we have the
initial qualification of 15 Airbus 310 pilots and 10 A320 pilots. The qualifications of these
25 pilots represented an investment of € 376,450.
The DCA, with investment of € 36,900, is the second most represented area in total
training costs, justified by the continuous effort to qualify Aircraft Maintenance Personnel
(AMP) in A310 and A320 equipment.
In the remaining areas, investment was made in training totalling € 148,537, of which
€ 118,998 were in Support Areas, in particular Human Resources, Tax, Accounting and

2007 PERFORMANCE
Information Systems
2007 for Information Systems was marked above all by two different major projects, one
focusing on administrative and financial procedures (MySAP ERP) and the other with a
significant impact on the service provided to our customers, namely frequent flyers (Crane).
The MySAP ERP project was soon established as a true process of change for SATA that
can be considered quite ambitious, since its aim is to cover all the major functional back
office areas: Financial (General Accounting, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable,
Treasury and Assets), Human Resources (Personnel Administration, Salary Processing,
Training, Recruitment, Assessment and Performance and Occupational Medicine), Logistics
(Supplies and Warehouse Management), Sales and Invoicing and Ground Equipment
Maintenance, as well as advancing at the same time with a Document Management
process (accounting documents) and an Attendance Management process.
Decision taking for the implementation of MySAP ERP can be considered strategic, if not
crucial, for the future of all the SATA companies, since, while it is not a ‘business’ application,
it can guarantee the proper functioning of business support processes.
The first transaction using this new application was performed on 1 January 2007 and
the remaining modules were phased into production over the following months. This
process of change can be considered to have been successfully concluded, although
there is still room for consolidation of processes in the future.
Electronic Tickets were launched by SATA in 2005, initially introduced for travel agencies
and then (last quarter of 2006) launched in full strength for all SATA agencies.
During 2007 the Interline eTicket (IET) process was implemented with our main business
partner, thus extending the services available associated with the existing code share.
With the implementation of this functionality, SATA is now 100% eligible with regard to the
IATA adoption of Electronic Ticketing under its ‘Simplifying the Business’ (StB) initiative.
No less significant was the expansion of eligibility to issue Electronic Tickets to routes to
and from the United States of America, this market now enjoying all associated functionalities.

2007 PERFORMANCE
In May 2007 the Crane project went live and was soon introduced in all the areas of the
company in a way that can be considered non-intrusive for business procedures in
progress.
This change resulted from the need felt to adapt the support application to the business
procedures associated with the management of members of Clube SATA, and all the
objectives of this project were achieved with the entry into production of this application.
The value generated for members of the club is considerably higher than with the previous
solution and a platform has been created for the progress and development of the club.
Internet sales, as a direct sales channel, play an increasingly important role in the life
of companies that seek to be competitive in their market, both as a matter of processing
efficiency and as a means to achieve greater presence and market penetration. Airline
companies are not uninvolved with this technology, and the success of both low-cost and
traditional airlines is directly related to how they sell their products on the Internet.
To provide SATA with an internet sales channel that allows it to achieve the group's sales
objectives, a project is being organised that has been given the name SOBE – SATA
Booking Engine.
The plan for this project was the execution of a series of activities with an expected duration
of more than 1 year and the main functionalities are due to be made available in 2008.
The first stage of this project was first developed in December 2007 and is expected to
be concluded in May 2008. It will permit full online reservations and payments and the
issuing of electronic tickets.
1990 | CHANGE AND EXPANSION
SATA experiences a historical occasion: the era of the AVRO HS 748 comes to an end,
twenty years later; it joins the International Air Transport Association – IATA – and the
European Regional Airlines Association – ERA; it acquires the Canadian Pacific Airlines
offices in Lisbon; and receives two ATP aircraft.

SATA - SOCIEDADE DE TRANSPORTES AÉREOS, SGPS, S.A.
(Amounts in euros - €)
INTRODUCTORY NOTE
SATA Internacional – Serviços e Transportes Aéreos, S.A. (‘Company’ or ‘SATA Internacional’)
was incorporated on 10 December 1990, and was known as Oceanair – Transportes
Aéreos Regionais, S.A. until 20 February 1998.
The Company is a limited company, with registered office at Avenida Infante D. Henrique,
in Ponta Delgada, and has as its corporate purpose the operation of commercial, scheduled
and non-scheduled air transport of passengers and their baggage, cargo and mail.
In December 2006, the Company was awarded the contract for the operation of public
service routes between the Mainland and the Autonomous Region of the Azores and
between the Azores and the Autonomous Region of Madeira, on a code share basis with
TAP for the period between 1 January and 31 December 2007.
As at 31 December 2007, the Company operated with four Airbus A310-304 aircraft, of
which three under lease agreements and the fourth under an operating lease, as well as
three Airbus A320 aircraft under operating leases (Note 54).
The notes that follow are in keeping with the sequential numbering as set forth in the
Official Chart of Accounts. Notes not included herein are not applicable to the Company
or are not relevant to the understanding of the financial statements.
3. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES
The accompanying financial statements were prepared on the going concern basis
from the accounting books and records of the Company, in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles in Portugal.
2007 – SATA AND THE ARCHIPELAGO OF MADEIRA
At the request of the Portuguese Government, SATA Air Açores increases the scope of its
role in the Atlantic islands, ensuring the Funchal – Porto Santo route.
It will also offer charter flights to Las Palmas during the IATA summer season.

ANNUAL REPORT
AND ACCOUNTS
2007
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The main accounting principles used in the preparation of the financial statements
were the following:
a) Tangible fixed assets
Flight equipment
The flight equipment, acquired second hand, is recorded in the balance sheet at
cost. Depreciations are calculated on cost less residual value (10% of the cost),
on a straight-line basis and from the month of acquisition or commissioning, during
the remaining useful life of the aircraft.
Other tangible fixed assets
Other tangible fixed assets are stated at cost.
Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis, from the month of acquisition
or commissioning, and determined based on the estimated useful life of the assets,
as follows:
Years of useful life
Plant and machinery
5-10
Vehicles
7
Tools and utensils
6
Fixtures and fittings
4
Other tangible fixed assets
3-8
Repairs and routine maintenance costs are recorded as costs of the financial year
to which they refer.
b) Leases
Fixed assets acquired by way of finance lease agreements as well as the corre­
sponding liabilities are calculated using the financial method. According to this
method the cost of the asset is recorded in tangible assets, the corresponding
liability is recorded under liabilities and the interest included in the value of the lease

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
payments and the depreciation of the assets are recorded as costs in the profit
and loss account for the year to which they refer.
Lease payments in respect of operating lease agreements are stated at cost as
incurred.
c) Inventory
Goods are valued at cost, using the average cost method, which is lower than their
market value.
d) Accruals basis
The Company records revenue and expenditure on an accruals basis whereby
revenue and expenditure are recorded when generated, regardless of when they
are received or paid. The differences between the amounts received and paid and
the corresponding income and expenses are recorded under ‘Accruals and deferrals’
(Note 50).
e) Recognition of transport revenue
The value of the sale of passenger transport is recorded as a liability at the time
of sale in ‘Advances from customers’. When the transport is made, the sale revenue
is transferred from ‘Advances from customers’ to revenue for the year, if provided
by the Company, or transferred to accounts payable, if the transport is made by
another airline company.
f) Financial compensation for public service obligations
The financial compensation awarded by the Portuguese State for public service
obligations are recognised in the period in which their entitlement originates and
are recorded in operating subsidies. This financial compensation is calculated in
accordance with the concession contracts for the scheduled airline services
between Ponta Delgada and Lisbon, between Ponta Delgada and Oporto and
between Ponta Delgada and Funchal (Introductory Note), by reference to number
of passengers transported who are resident in the Autonomous Regions.
2007 | SHUTTLE SERVICE TO EUROPE

Internacional links the Archipelagos of Madeira and Azores to Europe.

AND ACCOUNTS

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
g) Maintenance expenses
The Company records as costs for the year expenses to be incurred in the future
with general overhauls of aircraft, which are recorded in the profit and loss account
for the years by reference to the flight hour costs of each aircraft, under the
maintenance agreement, which establishes the payment of a fixed amount per
flight hour for each aircraft (Note 34).
h) Assets and liabilities in foreign currencies
Assets and liabilities in foreign currencies as at 31 December 2007 were converted
into Euros using the exchange rates in effect on that date, as follows:
USD
0.6798
GBP
1.3578
CAD
0.6944
Exchange rate differences, favourable and unfavourable, resulting from differences
between exchange rates applicable at the transaction date and those at the date
of collection, payment or on the balance sheet date are recorded as income and
costs in the profit and loss account.
i)
Deferred taxes assets
Deferred taxes refer to temporary differences between the values of assets and
liabilities for accounting purposes and their respective values for taxation purposes.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are calculated and evaluated annually using the
taxation rates that are expected to be applicable on the date of the reversion of
the temporary differences.
Deferred tax assets are recorded exclusively when there are reasonable expectations
of sufficient future taxable profit against which they can be utilised. At the end of
each reporting period, a review is made of the temporary differences underlying
deferred tax assets with a view to recognising deferred tax assets not previously
recorded because the conditions to do so were not then extant and/or to reduce

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
the amount of deferred tax assets recorded in the light of present expectations for
their future recovery.
The main temporary differences and their effect on the financial statements for the
year ended 31 December 2007 are described in Note 6.
6. TAXES
According to legislation in force, tax returns are subject to review and correction
by the tax authorities during a period of four years (ten years for Social Security
until 2000, inclusive, and five years since 2001). Therefore the Company’s tax
returns for 2004 to 2007 may still be subject to review.
The Company's Board of Directors believes that any corrections due to re­
views/inspections by tax authorities of those tax returns will not have a significant
effect on the financial statements as at 31 December 2007.
Corporation tax (IRC) recorded as costs for the year ended 31 December 2007
is corrected by the effect of accounting for deferred taxes, as referred to in Note
3.i). The main temporary differences between the values calculated and taxable
on 31 December 2007 and the corresponding deferred tax assets and their effects
on the profit for 2007 are as follows:
Description
(Note 34)
Rate
Tax
Non-tax deductible provisions

1,829,814
With the approval of the Portuguese Local Finances Act, municipalities may vote
each year to charge ‘Derrama’ (municipal surcharge), up to a maximum limit of
1.5% on the taxable profit not free from corporation tax (IRC). Given that approval
shall take effect from 1 January 2007, the amount of deferred tax assets and
liabilities is calculated based on a maximum rate of 19% (17.5% of taxable income
and 1.5% of ‘Derrama’).
As at 31 December 2007, the amount recorded in income tax is as follows:

Supplementary capital: By decision of the General Meeting of Shareholders of 27
December 2001, the sole shareholder of the Company provided supplementary
capital amounting to € 17,446,294. Supplementary capital, under current legislation,
can only be returned to shareholders provided the equity capital after its return
is no less than the sum of the capital and of the legal reserve.
Legal reserve: Commercial legislation establishes that at least 5% of the net annual
profit must be used to increase the legal reserve until it represents at least 20%
of the capital. This reserve may not be distributed except in the event of liquidation
of the company, but may be used to absorb losses after other reserves have been
exhausted, or may be incorporated into the capital.
As deliberated at the General Meeting held on 31 March 2007, the net profit for
the year 2006, amounting to € 1,743,674, was applied as follows:
