Finavia’s Statistics for January–March Reveal the Huge Impact of Pandemic

Air traffic statistics just published by Finavia show the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on air traffic and airport operations.

In total, the number of air passengers for all Finavia airports fell by 20,1 percent in January–March. In March, Helsinki Airport’s passenger numbers were down 57,2 percent compared to the same period in 2019.

According to the current estimate, the impact of the decrease in air traffic on Finavia’s turnover will be over EUR100 million. We estimate that this year’s total number of passengers may be a third lower than last year’s. This is a much more dramatic drop than what air traffic has ever experienced before.

In order to overcome this challenging situation together with the airport community, we have provided our tenants and partners with significant relief. We have also decided to continue the ongoing Helsinki Airport Development Programme for the time being in order to guarantee Finland’s accessibility and competitiveness also in the future,” said, Kimmo Mäki, CEO, Finavia.
