On the increase in passenger traffic slowing, this is what Finnair had to say on that:

“[The] increase in passenger traffic numbers year-on-year during a seasonally slower month, on-time performance impacted by severe weather conditions”.

“”The ASK increase in Asian traffic was 13.1% year-on-year explained e.g. by the additional capacity to Japan and South Korea.”

“The North Atlantic capacity decreased by 5.8%. In European traffic, the ASKs were up by 5.9%. The Middle Eastern capacity declined by 7.3% mainly due to cancelled flights to Israel. The ASKs in domestic traffic increased by 0.4%.”

“RPKs increased in Asian traffic by 3.0% year-on-year but decreased in North Atlantic traffic by 3.7%. They increased by 2.2% in European traffic but decreased by 0.9% in Middle Eastern traffic and by 2.4% in domestic traffic.”

All eyes will be on how February performs for the airline.
