Finnish carrier Finnair witnessed 16 per cent growth in its scheduled traffic in May 2010, as compared to the year-ago period.
Finnair said that the scheduled traffic rose by 16 per cent from the previous year while the Asian traffic demand climbed by 28 per cent.
Last month, passenger numbers touched 590,000, a rise of three per cent as against the same period a year ago.
"It's excellent that demand returned after the problems of April. Scheduled traffic demand and the passenger load factor are again moving in the right direction, but aircraft still have room for additional demand," Finnair Senior Vice President (Communications) Christer Haglund said in a statement.
In May, the overall traffic, which includes leisure traffic, increased by 10 per cent as compared to the year-ago period while the capacity went up nearly eight per cent.
