Stock Exchange Release 11 January 2016 at 09:00 am EET
In December, Finnair's overall capacity measured in Available Passenger Kilometres grew by 8.1 per cent and traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 7.8 per cent year‐on‐year. The passenger load factor decreased by 0.2% points to 76.8 per cent.
The capacity in Asian traffic increased in December by 4.3 per cent, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres increased by 5.3 per cent year‐on‐year as Finnair offered more flights than last year particularly to Korea and Thailand. Meanwhile, the pronounced growth in American traffic was particularly due to the scheduled flights offered to Miami in December 2015, in addition to New York.
The capacity in European traffic grew by 5.1 per cent on the back of increased frequencies and new destinations, while traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres grew by 3.4 per cent year‐on‐year. At the same time, the growth in domestic traffic is mainly attributed to the inclusion of the routes previously operated at Norra’s own commercial risk as Finnair’s purchased traffic.
In October-December, the passenger unit revenue* per available seat kilometre grew by 2.2 per cent year‐on‐year and totalled 5.38 euro cents.
"In the last quarter of 2015, the passenger unit revenue improved in our main traffic areas, Europe and Asia, reflecting the higher achieved load factors. Meanwhile, unit revenue developments were more subdued on our domestic and North American routes, where our capacity had increased faster", says Finnair CFO Pekka Vähähyyppä.
In December, the cargo capacity in scheduled traffic measured in Available Tonne Kilometres grew by 4.2 per cent, while Revenue Tonne Kilometres remained unchanged year on year. The cargo load factor in scheduled traffic was 55.1 per cent. In addition, Finnair’s total freight capacity includes two weekly freighter flights between Helsinki and Brussels and two shared weekly freighter flights with IAG between Helsinki and London, both operated by DHL.
In December, 85.8 per cent of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (82.2).
Traffic statistics for January 2016 are published on Monday, 8 February 2016.
