Finnair traffic in June 2015: Number of passengers grew by 5.7%


In June, Finnair’s overall capacity measured in Available Seat Kilometres decreased by 0.1 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres increased by 1.5 per cent year?on?year. Passenger load factor was 84.7 per cent.

The capacity in Asian traffic decreased by 7.1 per cent and the traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres declined by 2.3 per cent year?on?year.

The capacity in European traffic grew by 4.7 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres by 3.2 per cent year?on?year.

In April-June, the passenger unit revenue* per available seat kilometre grew by 4.3 per cent year?on?year and totalled 5.52 euro cents.

In the second quarter of 2015, the passenger unit revenues developed favourably in all traffic areas apart from European traffic. Opening of the Chicago route replacing the seasonal Hanoi route on 13 June has been well received by customers, and sales have started in line with our expectations. The number of business travellers has also delightfully increased somewhat” says Finnair CFO Mika Stirkkinen.

In June, the cargo capacity in scheduled traffic, measured in Available Tonne Kilometres grew by 3.8 per cent and Revenue Tonne Kilometres decreased by 1.6 per cent year-on-year. Cargo load factor in scheduled traffic was 55.4 per cent. The cargo overall figures reflect a structural change from the comparison period, as Finnair withdrew from the use of leased NGA freighter aircraft capacity in Asian traffic. In June, the cargo traffic consisted almost entirely of belly cargo on scheduled flights.

In June, 86.5 per cent of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (87.1).

Traffic statistics for July are published on Monday, 10 August 2015.
