Finnair is continuing its network ramp-up, with expansions across Europe, Asia and North America.
The move is being taken as vaccine coverage improves and countries open up.
Finnair currently serves Tokyo, Seoul and Bangkok daily.,with services to Singapore and Hong Kong. Osaka will rejoin the network in October, as well Naygoa in February 2022.
The airline will also operate its route to Dubai with an Airbus A350-900 soon.
Chicago will see regular service, upgrading the service from a summer-only service to an all-year service.
The airline operates a daily service to New York and three times a week to Miami and Los Angeles. The Stockholm operation will also spin up during this period.
It might be winter in Europe, but the network continues to build momentum, with the airline flying twice a day to many of Europe’s key destinations, such as Amsterdam, Munich, Dusseldorf, Berlin and Frankfurt.
Finnair flies to London and Paris three times a day, maintaining these trunk-line links to Finland.
St. Petersburg’s weekly flighty will also be increased during the winter season.
Finnair offers several daily connections to the Nordic capitals and also opens flights to Krakow and Gdansk during the winter season. For the winter season,
For those who need to escape to the sun, the airline is adding connectivity to popular resorts in Spain, offering several weekly flights to Malaga, the Canary Islands, Madrid and Barcelona.
At home in Finland, Lapland continues to attract winter tourists, and Finnair enables smooth connections to the north by flying four times a day to Rovaniemi, Ivalo and Kittilä, as well as twice a day to Kuusamo.
Ole Orvér, Finnair’s Commercial Director said:
“We are happy to expand our network again and enable better connectivity for our customers,”
“As the number of customers grows, we are also restoring our services that are important to our customers: we opened the Finnair Lounge on the Schengen side already in August, and Finnair’s non-Schengen lounge will open at the beginning of October. We have also renewed the food and beverage service for flights.”
Ramping back up
For Finnair, it seems the worst may be over, with their network slowly building reliance as well as frequency – with some interesting network additions (such as the winter service to Chicago, and the building out of its Japanese network).
With the network stabilising and them comfortable enough to build out the network, it’s a sign of confidence as the world recovers.
Hopefully, that confidence can be held over the traditional winter period.
