Finnair: “For all traffic, passenger load factor improved considerably due to successful capacity planning, pricing campaign and new domestic and Nordic pricing categories. Capacity in Asian traffic was scaled back around Chinese New Year when the Asian travel demand to Europe is low. Passenger load factors improved notably in domestic and European traffic: Passenger load factor in domestic traffic improved by almost 10 ppts and in Europe by over 7 ppts. The load factor in leisure traffic declined year-on-year due to overcapacity in the package tour market in Finland and it was 89.6%,” Erno Hildén, Finnair CFO.
