Finnair has appointed AVS Indonesia as its
General Sales Agent for passenger sales in Indonesia.
Passengers flying Finnair to Europe will be
routed via Singapore to Helsinki.
“With the country’s robust growth,
more and more Indonesians are travelling to Europe for business
and pleasure. Setting up a sales office is the first step in a
process that may lead to Finnair opening a route to Jakarta,” said
Petteri Kostermaa, Finnair’s Sales Director for Singapore and
South East Asia.
“Travellers from Indonesia can take the Singapore to Helsinki
flight which is the fastest connecting route for travellers to
Northern Europe, and from there, connect to more than 50 European
destinations. We think that some passengers may even want to take advantage of the routing and make a stopover in Singapore before
boarding our Finnair flight to Europe.”
In Indonesia, Finnair is partnering several
regional airlines to offer connections from Jakarta, Denpasar,
Surabaya, Medan, Makassar and Palembang via Singapore to Europe.
Finnair currently flies to 10 Asian
destinations, with the latest daily non-stop flight from Singapore
to Helsinki launched only this May.
