Finavia: ”The number of travellers at Finavia airports has seen a considerable increase in early 2012, even though the number of flights has remained the same. Increases are for the large part due to better occupancy rates on many routes. New routes have also brought in new travellers in Northern Finland, for example. However, we expect that Finnish airports have now seen their strongest period of growth, and the development will be more moderate in the rest of the year,” Kimmo Ruotsalainen, sDirector.
