Finnair: “Finnair expects that the second-quarter result will be negative. Therefore the company continues to expect that it will be unable to achieve a positive result in 2011 unless there is a substantial improvement towards the end of the year in the oil price trend and in the situation in Japan. At the same time, the company expects that the results of the second half of the year will be positive. Finnair continues to expect that its turnover will grow by more than 10% in the full year,” Company statement. Source: Finnair, 28-Apr-2011.
