Finnair Traffic Performance in March 2023

Robust demand in March as passenger load factor was on par with pre-pandemic levels; also solid cargo performance continued.

Many cargo figures increased year-on-year in March due to Qatar Airways cooperation and increased Asian capacity even though discontinued operations between Sweden and the US cut North Atlantic cargo capacity. Available scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 28.2% year-on-year and revenue scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 18.3%. The total cargo tonnes (including cargo-only operations) increased by 16.3% year-on-year. Month-on-month increase of 14.6% was mainly explained by the longer month.  

In March, 84.6% of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (85.7%).

Traffic statistics for April 2023 will be published on Friday 5 May 2023.
