Finnair traffic performance in June 2024

Finnair

In June, Finnair carried 1,090,600 passengers. This was 9.4% more than in June 2023.

The overall capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK), increased in June by 9.2% year-on-year as additional narrow-body capacity was deployed by Finnair after the wet lease outs to British Airways ended in March 2024.

If wet lease outs are included, capacity increased by 11.2% due to the co-operation with Qantas.

Finnair’s traffic, measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPKs), increased by 8.2%. The Passenger Load Factor (PLF) declined by 0.7% points to 80.0%.

The distance-based reported traffic figures do not take into account longer routings caused by the airspace closure as they are based on Great-Circle distance in accordance with the industry practice.

The ASKs in Asian traffic were up by 6.1% year-on-year due to added capacity to Japan.

In North Atlantic ASKs increased by 16.4% due to added frequencies to Dallas and Chicago.

In European traffic, the ASKs were up by 12.3% as majority of the increase in narrow-body capacity was allocated to Europe.

The Middle Eastern capacity declined by 7.0% mainly due to cancelled flights to Israel. The ASKs in domestic traffic increased by 11.3% due to the additional narrow-body capacity.

RPKs increased in Asian traffic by 6.5% year-on-year. They increased by 17.9% in North Atlantic traffic, by 9.5% in European traffic and by 2.0% in domestic traffic whereas they decreased by 7.1% in Middle Eastern traffic.

In June, the PLF was 77.7% in Asian traffic, 83.8% in North Atlantic traffic, 81.9% in European traffic, 74.1% in Middle Eastern traffic and 69.3% in domestic traffic.

Passenger numbers increased by 6.1% in Asian traffic, by 12.0% in European traffic and by 16.1% in North Atlantic traffic.

They decreased by 8.8% in Middle Eastern traffic and by 0.7% in domestic traffic.

In June, 75.7% of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (82.0%). The on-time performance decline was due to the closure of one of the runways at Helsinki Airport for renovation work.
