Finnair: “The uncertain economic outlook in Europe, together with weakened consumer demand and slower growth in Asia, make it difficult to assess how air traffic will continue to develop. Fuel costs are expected to remain high in 2013 as well, and the demand for air traffic is estimated to grow in moderation. Finnair estimates that its turnover will grow in 2013. The airline unit costs excluding fuel (CASK excl. fuel) are expected to decrease compared with 2012, and operational result is expected to show a profit in 2013.” Source: Company statement, 08-Feb-2013
