93

Number of passengers grew in all traffic areas, 13.2% year‐on‐year as a whole

In February, Finnair’s overall capacity measured in Available Passenger Kilometres grew by 8.4 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 8.7 per cent year‐on‐year. The leap year had a positive growth contribution of approximately 3 per cent, as there was one more day in February than in the comparison period. The passenger load factor rose by 0.2 % points to 79.1 per cent

The capacity in Asian traffic increased in February by 7.9 per cent, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres increased by 10.5 per cent year‐on‐year. Meanwhile, capacity in American traffic increased by 5.3 per cent, but traffic growth as measured in RPK was only 2.2 per cent.

The capacity in European traffic grew by 7.9 per cent on the back of increased frequencies and new destinations, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 5.1 per cent year‐on‐year. At the same time, the growth in domestic traffic is mainly attributed to the inclusion of the routes previously operated at Norra’s own commercial risk as Finnair’s purchased traffic.

In February, the cargo capacity in scheduled traffic measured in Available Tonne Kilometres grew by 11.4 per cent, and Revenue Tonne Kilometres increased by 6.3 per cent year on year. The cargo load factor in scheduled traffic was 52.5 per cent. In addition, Finnair’s total freight capacity includes two weekly freighter flights between Helsinki and Brussels and two weekly freighter flights shared with IAG between Helsinki and London, both operated by DHL.

In February, 81.6 per cent of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (87.0).
