Finnair posts positive volumes

AN expanding Asian network and collaboration with Nordic Global Airlines (NGA) has helped to boost Finnair’s cargo volumes by almost a quarter.

December 2011 volumes amounted to 11,902 metric tonnes, up 25.3 per cent on the same month in 2010. Total 2011 results showed an 18.5 per cent rise to 145,883 tonnes.

In August last year Finnair began weekly MD-11F flights from Helsinki (Finland) to Mumbai (India) in co-operation with NGA, in which it has a minor shareholding. NGA began commercial operations in August 2011.

In Asia Finnair Cargo provides freighter services to and from Frankfurt (Germany), Hong Kong (China), New York (US), Seoul (South Korea) and Shanghai (China).
