Number of passengers grew 11.9% to a new record of 1.4 million
In June, Finnair carried 1,388,000 passengers, 11.9% more than in the corresponding period of 2018. This is the highest number ever in Finnair. The overall capacity measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK) increased in June by 11.2%. Finnair’s traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPKs) increased by 12.2%, and the Passenger Load Factor (PLF) increased year-on-year by 0.8% points to 86.2%.
Finnair’s long-haul capacity increased year-on-year with three new A350 aircraft that entered the service in December 2018, in February 2019 and in April 2019. The ASK growth in Asian traffic was 11.5%, mainly due to additional frequencies to Hong Kong and Osaka. The North American capacity increased by 33.7% following the addition of Los Angeles in March and frequency additions to San Francisco compared to the previous year.
In European traffic, the ASKs were up by 7.1%. The growth derived from one new narrow-body aircraft year-on-year, additional seating capacity in some of the existing narrow-body aircraft and on average longer routes. The added capacity was allocated to destinations such as Stockholm, St Petersburg, London and Moscow and new seasonal destinations Hannover, Trondheim and Bologna. Capacity in domestic traffic increased by 3.3%.
RPKs increased in Asian traffic by 9.4%, in North American traffic by 34.8%, in European traffic by 11.2% and in domestic traffic by 5.4%. The PLF was 84.6% in Asian traffic, 95.0% in North American traffic, 87.0% in European traffic and 71.4% in domestic traffic.
Passenger numbers increased in Asian traffic by 8.8%, in North American traffic by 27.2%, in European traffic by 13.2% and in domestic traffic by 5.2%.
Available scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 15.4% year-on-year. Revenue scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 9.0% mostly driven by the positive cargo market development in Scandinavia and Finland.
In June 76.8% of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (83.5%).
