Majority of the deputies in parliament are reluctant to hand over the national flag carrier Finnair to private sector, according to a survey conducted by Finnish language news consortium Lännen Media.
Only one in four deputies would approve the state to relinquish majority of shares of Finnair soon, said the survey.
The survey was conducted among 86 deputies in May. About 60 percent of respondents opposed the possible privatisation move while the rest are yet to take decision in this regard.
Both the government and the opposition would like to keep Finnair. 
The state majority is mostly justified with securing flights over Russia which conditionally al-lows Finnair to operate flights over its air space.
Privatization of Finnair has been long debated, but there is no political will to relinquish the major stake held by the government.
