FINNAIR PLC	STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE	27 MARCH 2008 AT 1415

GUIDANCE AT FINNAIR ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING:
OPERATIONAL RESULT FOR FIRST HALF OF YEAR EXPECTED TO REMAIN AT LAST YEAR'S
LEVEL 

Finnair Group's operational result (i.e. EBIT excluding capital gains,
non-recurring arrangement expenses and changes in the fair value of
derivatives) for the first half of the year is expected to remain at last years
level despite the rise in fuel costs. 

Growth of demand is expected to continue and the price level is expected to
remain almost at the same level as last year. In Asian traffic, unit revenues
are on the rise. The high fuel price hedging rate and the weak dollar have
alleviate the impact of strongly rising fuel costs. 

In the first part of the year, Finnair's demand, especially in Asian traffic,
has continued to grow. Demand for Business Class travel on Asian routes is on
the rise. Finnair's Asian traffic is expected to grow over 20 per cent from
last year compared with the previous year. A third of Finnair's Asia-Europe
passengers are from central and southern Europe, one third from the Nordic
Countries and one third from Asia.
