Finnair has unveiled plans to launch flights
between Helsinki and Hanover, Germany, next summer.
The new route will start on 29 April 2019
with five weekly frequencies and will become a daily and
year-round frequency as of 1 June 2019.
Hanover is one of Northern Germany’s largest
cities and hosts several important fair and trade events
throughout the calendar year.
The city will be Finnair’s seventh
destination in Germany as the airline already flies year-round to Berlin,
Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart.
are very excited to open a new route to Hanover and to continue
our growth and expansion into Germany as it is a very important
market for Finnair. We’ve also significantly increased our
presence in the German market for the upcoming 2018 summer season
by adding approximately 35 percent capacity compared to last
summer,” said Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair.
Additional capacity is also being added for the 2019 summer
season on some popular European routes.
Finnair will add four
weekly frequencies to Barcelona from the beginning of June until
the end of the summer season. An additional frequency will be
added to Reykjavik, making it a daily destination for the entire
summer season. In addition, an additional daily frequency will be
added to Warsaw on both Saturdays and Sundays.
The airline is
also adding capacity on its Helsinki-Dubai route for the upcoming
winter 2018 season. One weekly frequency will be added which means
Finnair will fly seven weekly frequencies to Dubai. In
addition, two of the weekly frequencies will now be operated with
a A350, instead of a narrow-body aircraft.
“Flying some of the Dubai frequencies with the
A350 during the winter season will also allow us to offer our
Finnair Business Class product with full-flat seats on this
popular leisure and business route,” Juha Järvinen said.
