Finnair sees demand improvements

Finnair Chief Executive, Mika Vehvilainen stated that the first signs of an improvement in demand are perceptible in Europe and Asia (Reuters, 31-Mar-2010). He added, however, that the first indications of a change in sentiment do not give any reason to change earnings guidance. The carrier stated in Feb-2010 it expected to make a loss in Jan-Mar and profitability to improve towards end of 2010.
