Finnair to Operate Helsinki - Guangzhou Service Year-Round

Finnair has extended its seasonal Guangzhou route to year-round operations and will operate the Helsinki - Guangzhou route with two flights per week during the 2019/2020 winter season.

 Finnair launched the Guangzhou route as a summer route in 2016, and as of this spring, will serve the route with Airbus A350 aircraft, adding both passenger and cargo capacity.

 The airline operates the route with four flights per week during the summer season.

“The extension of the operating season of our Guangzhou route is a logical next step in our Asian strategy,” said Christian Lesjak, SVP, Network and Resource Management, Finnair. “Travel between Finnair’s Chinese destinations and Europe is increasing, and we are happy now to be able to offer year-round operations to our passengers and cargo customers.”

Finnair will also operate from the new Terminal 2 in Guangzhou, a move which will support the planned codeshare collaboration between Finnair and China Southern Airlines.

 Finnair currently serves seven destinations  in Greater China – Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Xi´an and Hong Kong, and will in the 2019 summer season operate up to 42 weekly frequencies to China from its Helsinki hub.
