Finnair and fellow Oneworld carrier Qatar Airways have inked an agreement to establish a long-term strategic cooperation on flights to Doha from Helsinki, Stockholm, and Copenhagen. Finnair and Qatar Airways are currently exploring the possibility of launching regular services between another European destination and Doha. These services will be supported by a comprehensive codeshare agreement with shared passenger and cargo capacity between both airlines.

Customers from the three Nordic capitals will benefit from seamless connections via Doha to Qatar Airways’ network of around 100 destinations around the world. The collaboration will also open new destinations and connection opportunities across Finnair’s Nordic network for Qatar Airways customers.

The services are planned to start between November and December 2022, with daily flights scheduled between Doha and all three of the aforementioned Scandinavian cities. They will be operated with Finnair’s Airbus A330 aircraft featuring the new long-haul cabins, including Air Lounge business-class seats, a brand-new premium economy travel class, and a refreshed economy class.

“We are delighted to expand our collaboration with our Oneworld partner Qatar Airways, offering new connections between Doha and the three Nordic capitals”, said Finnair CEO Topi Manner in a statement. “The role of Doha as an international hub is growing, and Qatar Airways has extensive connections from Doha onwards to for example Australasia, the Middle East, and Africa.”
