Recent border reopenings in Japan and Hong Kong have led to greater demand from long-haul flyers.

Though it remains deeply impacted by the ongoing closure of Russian airspace to E.U. carriers, Finnair has announced that it will be adding flights between its Helsinki hub and key destinations in Asia from late March. The Nordic airline plans to resume operations on the Helsinki–Osaka route with three weekly flights, while boosting frequencies to Tokyo Narita to four times weekly. Elsewhere in the region, Hong Kong and Delhi will see Finnair jets touching down on a daily basis during the 2023 summer season.

Starting on March 26, outbound services to Osaka will be flown on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while passengers heading to Helsinki will depart Osaka on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Eastbound Helsinki–Tokyo Narita flights are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and travelers going the other way will leave Narita on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from March 27. Finnair is also running daily flights to Tokyo Haneda throughout the season.

“We are happy to be able to respond to the increasing travel demand between Europe and key Asian destinations. In summer 2023, we will be operating altogether 14 weekly connections between Finland and Japan, and we have daily connections to Delhi and Hong Kong,” said Ole Orvér, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair, in a statement. “The Helsinki Airport with its spacious new facilities offers an excellent experience both for customers visiting Finland and for those who continue onwards to one of our many European destinations.”

Finnair’s flights between Helsinki and Japan are operated in codeshare with long-term partners Japan Airlines and British Airways, offering more choice and flexibility for customers traveling between Europe and Japan. Tickets for the 2023 summer season can now be booked at or via travel agents.
