Finnair's traffic, measured in passenger kilometres, grew by 3% in July 2010 compared with July the previous year.

Growth came mainly from Asian  traffic, which was up by more than 11%. The load factor for Asian traffic also improved by nearly one percentage point to 85%, with capacity increasing 10% compared with last year. There were nearly 12% more passengers on Asian flights than in the previous July.

"Growth is good in our main strategy area, namely Asia - Europe traffic. We have increased capacity and we will increase it further. Flights will be added to existing destinations and a new destination, Singapore, will be opened next spring," said Finnair's SVP Communications Christer Haglund.

European traffic declined by just over 4% in July. Capacity was cut by slightly more than 1%, so the load factor fell by a few percentage points to less than 75%. Domestic traffic declined by nearly 3% and capacity was cut by just under 1%, leading to the load factor falling by around one percentage point to just over 62%.

North Atlantic traffic declined by 16% while the load factor remained at just over 89%.

Leisure traffic grew by slightly more than 3%. Due to a capacity cut of a few percent, the load factor rose by nearly five percentage points to almost 91%.

The amount of cargo carried by Finnair grew in July by more than 54% compared with July last year. In scheduled traffic, the amount of cargo grew by more than 30% and cargo flights initiated this year are also reflected in the figures.

Of Finnair's flights, 86% arrived on schedule in July, which represents a decline of three and a half percentage points from July last year. In scheduled traffic, punctuality was over 87%, which was just over 3% lower than the previous July.
