Finnair explores possibility of cargo operations

FINNAIR Cargo Oy, which belongs to the Finnair Group, is exploring the possibility of starting cargo flights between Asia destinations and Helsinki using its own and leased aircraft. The goal is to begin flights before summer 2010.

“Growing cargo demand in the Asian market offers an opportunity to increase capacity between Asia and Europe. Traffic will be directed mainly from Asia to northern Europe, which is our domestic market area,” explains Finnair Cargo’s managing director Antero Lahtinen.

The carrier’s demand in Asian traffic – from nine destinations – grew in January by 40 per cent from the previous year.
