Next spring, Finnair will withdraw from service
three of its leisure traffic Boeing 757 aircraft.
The airline will continue to operate four
Boeing 757 aircraft, whose replacement in the coming years with
Airbus aircraft is being considered. Airbus A320 aircraft are
already being used now for leisure flights.
Some of this winter season's leisure flights
will be operated with new Airbus A330 long-haul aircraft.
Otherwise the A330 aircraft will be used in scheduled passenger
“Through the arrangement, we will reduce our
leisure flight capacity in the summer season, when demand for
leisure flights in Finland is lower than in the winter season. We
will also be able to use our long-haul fleet more flexibly on
scheduled and leisure flights according to seasonal fluctuations
in demand structure. In the winter season, the relative proportion
of leisure flights directed to long-haul destinations compared to
European destinations has been growing,” said Finnair's Deputy
Chief Executive Officer Lasse Heinonen.
