Finnair to Increase Flights to Select Destinations

Finnair has unveiled plans to operate a new winter route to Lyon, France for the 2018/2019 winter season.

Known for its gastronomy, historical landmarks and its proximity to the French Alps, Lyon is the second largest metropolitan area in France.

From 11 December 2018, Finnair will fly two weekly flights, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, to Lyon from its Helsinki hub with E90 aircraft.

Continuing with its growth strategy, Finnair will this year receive its twelfth Airbus A350 aircraft and will be adding several frequencies to its popular long-haul destinations.

Finnair’s route to Osaka will become daily during the winter season with two additional frequencies on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Two additional frequencies will also be added to the Hong Kong route on Fridays and Sundays, for a total of 12 weekly frequencies.

Finnair’s route to Delhi will become a daily destination during the winter season with the addition of a flight on Wednesdays and a fourth weekly frequency will also be added to the Phuket route on Mondays starting as of 10 December 2018.

In addition, the schedule for Finnair’s flight to Miami will be modified so it better coincides with Finnair’s other North American departures and its connecting flights to Europe.

Additional short-haul frequencies will be added to popular Finnair destinations in Europe during the winter season. An additional weekly frequency will be added to Malaga, Funchal and Tenerife, two weekly frequencies will be added to both Rome and Gran Canaria and a daily flight on weekdays will be added to Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland. Furthermore, Finnair will continue its non-stop flights to Lapland from London Gatwick, Paris and Zurich.

Finnair will also be extending the operating period on some of its existing routes. Malta and Antalya will now continue operating from the 2018 summer season until 9 December 2018.

The routes to Edinburgh and Alanya-Gazipasa will also be extended for the winter, making them new year-round destinations for Finnair.

“Finnair is currently in the largest expansion phase of its history and we are pressing forward by growing our capacity to popular destinations in Asia and Europe,” said Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “These added frequencies will offer our customers with more choice and flexibility for their winter plans.”
