From the end of the year, Finnair will increase
the number of its direct flights to Seoul, Nagoya, Osaka and
Delhi. Plus the airline will open a direct route to Singapore in
May next year, and increase flights to Hong Kong in June.
"Our Asian strategy is working very well and is creating many
opportunities for us. Due to growing demand, we are expanding our
fleet and boosting our market share in the Asian market," said Finnair's SVP Sales & Marketing Mika Perho.
Instead of the
previous four flights, Finnair will fly to Seoul six times per
week and to Nagoya five times per week from December this year. In
January 2011, the number of weekly flights to Osaka will be
increased to six and to Delhi seven.
From 27 March, the
start of the summer traffic season, Finnair will fly daily to
Seoul, Nagoya and Osaka.
Instead of the previous seven
flights, Finnair will fly to Hong Kong with a frequency of 12
flights per week from June next year.
"The shortest routes between Asia and
Europe pass through Helsinki, so Finnair is able to offer its
customers quick and efficient connections due to its favourable
geographical position," added Perho.
Finnair will fly a record number of 74 flights per week to 10
Asian cities: to Hong Kong 12 flights per week, to Tokyo, Osaka,
Nagoya, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok and Singapore daily, and
to Delhi six flights per week.
