In November, Finnair’s overall capacity measured in Available Passenger Kilometres grew by 9.2 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 9,0 per cent year‐on‐year. The passenger load factor decreased by 0.1%-points to 76.2 per cent.

In late October, airlines shifted into the winter season, entailing among other things the end of Finnair’s summer traffic to Chicago, Toronto and Xi’an. In turn, frequencies were increased for example to Miami, Bangkok and Delhi, while Phuket, Krabi and several Southern European destinations were opened for the winter season. The new A350 aircraft operated for the first three weeks of November primarily in Europe, until shifting to the Shanghai route on 21stNovember.

The capacity in Asian traffic increased in November by 4.4 per cent, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres increased by 2.7 per cent year‐on‐year. In particular, the capacity increase reflects the above changes in the traffic programme and the additional capacity due to the A350. Meanwhile, the pronounced growth in American traffic was due to the fact that, in contrast with last November when Finnair only flew to New York, this year there were also flights to Miami.

The capacity in European traffic grew by 8.4 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 10.5 per cent year‐on‐year. In addition to the increased weekly frequencies and new destinations, European capacity was temporarily boosted by the flights operated on the A350. 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 November, the cargo capacity in scheduled traffic measured in Available Tonne Kilometres grew by 31.6 per cent, and Revenue Tonne Kilometres increased by 7.1 per cent year-on-year. The cargo load factor in scheduled traffic was 62.5 per cent. Finnair’s capacity also included two shared freighter flights on a weekly basis with IAG between Helsinki and London commencing in mid-September.

In November, 92.1 per cent of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (89.1).
