0
46

Number of passengers grew in all traffic areas, 9.4% year‐on‐year as a whole

In January, Finnair’s overall capacity measured in Available Passenger Kilometres grew by 4.4 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 6.3 per cent year‐on‐year. The passenger load factor rose by 1.4 % points to 77.9 per cent.

The capacity in Asian traffic increased in January by 3.0 per cent, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres increased by 7.6 per cent year‐on‐year. The growth was largely due to the higher seating capacity of the A350 compared to the retired A340 aircraft. Meanwhile, the slight decline of capacity in American traffic was due to the temporary operation of the New York route on smaller wet-leased fleet for part of the month. At the same time, however, the number of passengers and passenger load factor on transatlantic flights increased.

The capacity in European traffic grew by 5.5 per cent on the back of increased frequencies and new destinations, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 3.5 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 January, the cargo capacity in scheduled traffic measured in Available Tonne Kilometres grew by 3.1 per cent, and Revenue Tonne Kilometres increased by 15.8 per cent year on year. The cargo load factor in scheduled traffic was 51.3 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 January, 74.2 per cent of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (81.4).

Traffic statistics for February 2016 will be published on Tuesday, 8 March 2016.
