Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 29 September 2008

Finnair is to launch daily flights to Tokyo in 2010. Air traffic agreement negotiations between Finland and Japan in September 2008 agreed on the right to increase the number of flights to all of Finnairs present destinations in Japan, namely Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

Even in financially difficult times, we must also look purposefully towards future earning opportunities. Receiving additional flights to Japan shows that Finnairs Asian strategy is moving forward. Our goal is to establish daily connections to all of our Asian destinations, and in this we have now succeeded with regard to Tokyo and Nagoya. We can now offer our customers more efficient flight connections than in the past and better service, said SVP Commercial Division Mika Perho.

Finland immediately has the right to 21 weekly return flights between Finland and Japan: four to Tokyo, ten to Osaka and seven to Nagoya. The number of Tokyo flights will grow to seven when the lengthening of Narita Airports second runway is completed in 2010. The total number of Japanese flights will then increase to 24.

The air traffic agreement also allows Finnair unlimited codesharing rights to Japanese domestic destinations via Osaka and Nagoya and also to three destinations via Tokyo.

Finnair and its oneworld alliance partner Japan Airlines have cooperated with each other since 2005. Finnairs flight number is on Japan Airlines flights to Sapporo and Fukuoka as well as to Haneda Airport, Tokyo. There are connections to these destinations from Finnairs FinlandJapan flights.

In addition, Finnairs frequent flyers have the chance to collect frequent flyer points and use their frequent flyer awards on Japan Airlines flights.
