Finnair to Launch Airbus A350 Flights to Los Angeles

Finnair has confirmed that it will launch flights to Los Angeles (LAX), California in spring.

 Finnair will operate the route three times per week with Airbus A350 aircraft commencing 31 March 2019.

“We are very happy to expand our North American network and fly a new route to Los Angeles with our Airbus A350,” said Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “We opened our route to San Francisco two years ago with tremendous success, proving that California and the West Coast are very popular with our customers. We are confident that this new route to Los Angeles will garner the same level of interest moving forward.”

Thanks to Helsinki’s geographical location, Finnair’s new northern route to Los Angeles will offer competitive travel times for customers from Scandinavia, the Baltics, Russia, Northern Germany as well as domestic routes in Finland.

Los Angeles will be Finnair's fifth US destination, along with New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Miami. The approximate flight times are expected to be 11 hours to LAX and 10 hours and 30 minutes to Helsinki.

The new route will be operated within the Atlantic joint business between Finnair, American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia.  Currently, the four airlines operate over 100 daily return flights between Europe and North America.
