As the share of fully vaccinated people continues to increase and societies are opening, travel is picking up in several markets.
Finnair is meeting the increased travel demand by adding frequencies and destinations in its network to Europe, Asia and North America for the upcoming winter season.
According to a statement, the Finnish flag carrier continues to serve its key Asian destinations, flying daily to Tokyo, Seoul and Bangkok, and offers multiple weekly frequencies to Singapore and Hong Kong.
Finnair’s Osaka service resumes in October, expanding the airline's presence back into the Japanese market, with Nagoya joining this route portfolio in February.
Finnair will also start serving its Dubai connection with a wide-body aircraft.
The company also will strengthen its North American services with flights to Chicago - previously a summer route - throughout the winter season.
Finnair also serves New York daily from Helsinki and operates three weekly flights to Miami and Los Angeles respectively.
In addition, the company will introduce direct routes to Los Angeles and New York from Stockholm, Sweden.
Finnair will also introduce direct routes from Stockholm to Miami, Phuket and Bangkok, as previously announced.
The company’s European network will rapidly increase in frequencies throughout the winter, with double daily services to key European cities such as Amsterdam, Munich, Dusseldorf, Berlin and Frankfurt, and three daily frequencies to London and Paris. Finnair also increases frequencies to St. Petersburg to support the traffic flows to Finnair’s North American destinations.
Finnair also offers multiple frequencies daily to Scandinavian capitals, and will introduce Krakow and Gdansk for the winter season. Frequencies to the popular holiday destinations in Spain will be increased, serving Malaga, the Canary Islands, Madrid and Barcelona with multiple weekly frequencies.
The Finnish Lapland continues to attract winter travellers and Finnair offers four daily connections to Rovaniemi, Ivalo and Kittilä, and two daily services to Kuusamo, with smooth connections from Helsinki.
