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.

Next summer, 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.
