Number of passengers grew by 8.7 per cent year‐on‐year

In August, Finnair’s overall capacity measured in Available Passenger Kilometres grew by 1.6 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 3.3 per cent year‐on‐year. The passenger load factor increased by 1.5%-points to 86.3 per cent.

The capacity in Asian traffic decreased by 6.5 per cent and the traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres decreased by 4.0 per cent year‐on‐year. The capacity decrease reflects comfort-improving cabin configuration changes made across the wide-body fleet last winter, and the discontinuation of the seasonal Hanoi route in June 2015, whereas it was operated until September last year. At the same time, the opening of the seasonal Chicago route in June shows as pronounced growth in American traffic.

The capacity in European traffic grew by 5.4 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 7.7 per cent year‐on‐year. The growth reflects, among other things, the change of certain European charter flights into scheduled traffic and new summer season routes. At the same time, the growth in domestic traffic is attributed to the transfer of the flights previously operated at Norra’s own commercial risk to Finnair’s purchased traffic.

In August, the cargo capacity in scheduled traffic, measured in Available Tonne Kilometres grew by 6.6 per cent and Revenue Tonne Kilometres increased by 5.1 per cent year-on-year. The cargo load factor in scheduled traffic was 55.0 per cent. The overall cargo figures reflect a structural change from the comparison period, as Finnair withdrew from the use of leased NGA freighter aircraft capacity in Asian traffic. In August, the cargo traffic consisted almost entirely of belly cargo on scheduled flights.

In August, 91.9 per cent of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (87.1).

Traffic statistics for September are published on Wednesday, 7 October 2015.
