Finnair: “Finnair aims to maximise total revenue, which is expected to maintain the passenger load factor at the previous year’s level or to reduce it slightly. Correspondingly, unit revenues are expected to be significantly higher than last year. Finnair’s fuel costs are expected to be lower during the current year than last year due to the improved fuel economy of aircraft. At the present price level and hedging policy, fuel costs this year are expected to be approximately one fifth of Finnair’s turnover. The final quarter is expected to be profitable, but due to seasonal fluctuations of demand and sales significantly weaker than the third quarter”, Mika Vehviläinen, President and CEO.
