Finnish flag air carrier Finnair has updated its terms and conditions for changing airline tickets as a result of the coronavirus situation.

Under the new terms, the travel date can be changed without a change fee and travel until 20 November, 2020. Before, Finnair allowed customers to postpone their travel until 30 June 2020. The airline company announced this on Monday.

The change conditions apply to trips booked up to 30 April, 2020. In addition, the original date of travel must be 30 November, 2020 or before. The reservation must be for a flight operated and marketed by Finnair and a Finnair ticket.

Changing conditions don't apply to Finnair Holidays, Aurinkomatkat (Suntours) and other tour operators' customers. If the customers' reservations are a group reservation, they should contact their travel agency.

Changing the flight time requires that there is room for the selected new flight. The change must be made by 30 November 2020 at the latest.

Cancellation of Rome flights

Finnair also announced that they will cancel their flights between Helsinki and Rome between 12 March and 7 April.

Last week, the company also announced cancellations of flights to Milan, Seoul, Busan, Hong Kong and Osaka, among other destinations, and 179 European flights.

The Government of Finland also has changed its travel recommendations related to the evolution of the novel coronavirus epidemic that affects the entire world.
