2 Flight travel growing, infrastructure under pressure European airlines’ performance improved in the early part of the year by an average five per cent, Finnair growth was over 20% Asian traffic overall grew by less than five per cent, Finnair’s Asian traffic grew 30% European airlines’ growth is now directed towards South America Fuel prices were high and rose slightly The industry is expecting its first profitable year since the beginning of the millennium In the difficult years, system investments have fallen behind growth in traffic

3 Baggage chaos in Europe Increased travel and security measures have delayed baggage at large European airports => also reflected in Finnair’s customer service. Strongly growing Asian traffic creates challenges for the service level of Helsinki-Vantaa Airport => temporary arrangements together with Finavia Preparations made for summer challenges; sharp tightening of security regulations in UK was a surprise Long delays, lots of problems for customers Terminal extension ready in 2009 will raise infrastructure to an excellent standard at Finnair’s home station

4 Finnair heading in the right direction Strong demand in scheduled traffic continues In addition to Asia, European traffic is also growing Finnair’s market share growing in international traffic departing from Finland Unit revenues on last year’s level Unit costs have fallen due to efficiency measures Profitability of scheduled traffic has improved FlyNordic joined Norwegian Air Shuttle, creating a strong Scandinavian airline

32 ROE and ROCE Rolling 12 months % ROEROCE

33 Emissions trading for air traffic EU air traffic accounts for only 0.5% of all CO2 emissions in the world Finnair in favour of emissions trading principles EU proposal sets airlines at somewhat unequal footings depending on route network structure Should be global Competitively neutral Investments already made in new technology should be taken into account Open emissions trading

34 Customers can make environmental choices when flying Choose an airline with a modern fleet Fly in the right direction all the way, without unnecessary stopovers. Shorter flight routes result in less emissions Avoid large, congested airports By making these choices, fuel consumption and emissions can drop by at best 30%!
