Finnair Group: “The uncertain economic outlook in Europe, weakened consumer demand and slower growth in Asia increase the uncertainty of the future development of air traffic. Fuel costs are expected to remain high in 2013 as well, and the demand for air traffic is estimated to grow moderately. Finnair estimates that its turnover will grow in 2013. Unit costs excluding fuel (CASK excl. fuel) are expected to decrease compared to 2012. Finnair estimates that its operational result will show a profit in 2013.” Source: Company statement, 26-Apr-2013.
