The average altitude of ISS orbit increased by 1 kilometer and amounted to 410,7 km.
After station reboost maneuvre the iss parameters are as follows:
Minimum altitude over the earth surface: 406,8 km;
Maximum altitude over the earth surface: 435,5 km;
Orbital period – 92,72 min;
Orbit inclination – 51,66 degrees.

This manevre was carried out to provide the conditions necessary for Progress M-19M cargo space vehicle launch, Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft landing on May 14, 2013 and Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft flight, scheduled for May 29, 2013.
