Scandinavia's SAS has lifted its full-year profit expectations following improvements to its unit revenues and stronger passenger numbers.
It is expecting profit before tax and exceptional items to be around SKr700-900 million ($72-93 million).
SAS had previously indicated, in its third-quarter financial statement, that achieving positive earnings would be "challenging".
The company's financial year runs to 31 October.
Chief executive Rickard Gustafson says the company has turned in a "strong performance" across its operations over the last months of the financial year.
"We are encouraged by an improved supply [against] demand balance in Scandinavia and that our product offering, combined with our determined efforts toward more sustainable air travel, continues to attract more customers," he adds.
