Finnair Group: “Finnair estimates that the operational result of the second half of the year, which will be stronger than the first half of the year due to seasonal variations, will reflect improved profitability compared to the first half of the year. The outlook for the world economy is still uncertain, and Finnair will adjust its passenger traffic capacity with its current structure according to demand, if necessary. Finnair estimates that this capacity will increase on last year but less than the 5 per cent level given in the earlier estimate. The growth will mainly come from Asian traffic, where Finnair increased capacity in May by opening a new flight route to Chongqing, China.” Source: Company statement, 10-Aug-2012.
