Finnair, the flag carrier of Finland, has added more flights to its growing Summer 2024 schedule, due to increased global demand for travel.
The extra flights to Europe, Asia and the US, come just ahead of the Christmas season, giving customers a chance to plan a summer to remember.
In the US, Finnair will be expanding its highly-sought after connection between Helsinki and Dallas, with flights increasing from four times to six times per week.
Flights to the Texan city were launched in March 2022 to allow seamless connections with oneworld partner American Airlines, and have since become one of the airline’s most popular routes.
In Asia, Finnair will also be adding an additional weekly flight to Shanghai, bringing its Helsinki service up to three times per week, as demand for travel to/from China grows.
This news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Finnair will relaunch direct flights between Helsinki and Nagoya from 30 May 2024.
The newly resumed twice-weekly connection between Helsinki and Nagoya – Japan’s fourth largest city – will support the airline’s existing services to Osaka, Tokyo-Haneda and Tokyo-Narita.
As part of the expansion, Finnair will also relaunch three weekly flights between Helsinki and Alicante from 4 April 2024, giving customers easier access to Spain’s most sought-after resorts.
Finnair is also boosting its European schedule next summer, offering customers lie-flat beds on even more short-haul services.
Next summer, the Finnish airline will operate its flagship long-haul A330s and A350s to three European destinations – up to 29 times per week – the highest number since before the pandemic.
From 31 March 2024, Finnair will add five weekly A350 flights on its popular Helsinki to Munich route, giving customers the option of travelling in space and style.
Those travelling between London Heathrow and Helsinki, can also enjoy double daily flights on Finnair’s A350 next summer, with flights between Amsterdam and Helsinki seeing up to 10 weekly A330/A350 rotations.
All services have been specifically timed to allow for easy connections from the UK and Ireland onto Finnair’s extensive global network within Europe, Asia and the US.
