The owner of Jet2 said it is confident about the future despite disappointment over the outcome of the EU referendum result.
Dart Group's chairman Philip Meeson said: "Although we were disappointed at the result of the recently held referendum on whether the UK should remain in the EU, we are confident that our customers will... be keen to travel from our rainy islands to the sun spots of the Mediterranean, The Canaries and to European leisure cities.
"The current financial year has started well in both our leisure travel and distribution businesses."
The owner of Leeds-based leisure airline Jet2.com said group revenue rose 12 per cent to £1.4bn in the year to March 31.
Group operating profit increased 109 per cent to £105m, reflecting strong trading in the group's leisure travel business together with an improved performance from the group's distribution and logistics business.
Pre-tax profit rose 82 per cent to £104.2m.
"Leisure Travel revenue grew 15 per cent to £1.26bn, reflecting increased yields from both our flight-only and package holidays products and a 22 per cent increase in package holiday customers, who represented 40 per cent of total departing passengers," said Mr Meeson.
Over three million customers took a flight or package holiday to Jet2's sun, city and ski destinations during the year.
"Our leisure travel business specialises in scheduled flights by our airline Jet2.com to holiday destinations in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and to European leisure cities and the provision of ATOL licensed package holidays by our tour operator Jet2holidays," said Mr Meeson.
"Our core principles are to be family friendly, offer value for money and give great customer service. For those customers who have arranged their own accommodation, our flights offer competitive fares, convenient flight times, allocated seating and a 22kg baggage allowance.
"Our package holidays give us the opportunity to deliver an 'end-to-end' experience to which we add value through innovation and customer service. Importantly, our customer volumes allow us to serve many destinations daily and others several times a week during the spring, summer and autumn months, and enable us to offer a great choice of variable duration holidays at affordable prices."
He said that following the "encouraging" results, the board is recommending a final dividend of 3.10p per share, up from 2.25p last year, which will bring the total proposed dividend to 4.0p per share for the year, up 33 per cent on last year.
