Finnair Adds Two Destinations in Asia


Finnair will be adding two new routes to Japan and China next year in a bid to expand its existing Asian market. The airline, which also recently announced plans to start flying its new A350 aircraft this month, will begin services to Fukuoka in Spring 2016, departing three times a week from Helsinki. It will make use of the the carrier’s alliance with British Airways and Japan Airlines to service the route. Finnair’s new China route, on the other hand, will start flying to Guangzhou in a seasonal operation, with flights scheduled four times a week between May 6 and October 29 next year. The carrier has allocated its A330 aircraft to be utilized for both destinations.

“We intend to double our Asian traffic by 2020 from the 2010 baseline, and these new destinations are an important step towards this target,” said Pekka Vauramo, president and CEO of the airline. “We have a long tradition of connecting Asia and Europe with smooth fast connections via our Helsinki hub, and I look forward to expanding our network to these two exciting markets.”
