Finnair: “Strengthening demand, recovering load factors and clearly improved unit revenues have restored profitability to a positive course. It is also positive that our operational cash flow has returned to black figures…we are continuing to implement a EUR200 million profitability improvement programme, the fruits of which are apparent in the result. Some of the savings still depend on how well elements improving our cost competitiveness can be incorporated into collective agreements currently being negotiated,” Company statement.

Finnair: “Air travel demand has clearly picked up and unit revenues are improving. Business travel is expected to strengthen, particularly outside Finland. The challenge is to regulate the balance between pricing and passenger load factor to deliver the best overall yield,” Company statement. Source: Finnair, 06-Aug-2010.
