Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 18 November 2009

Finnair will resume some of its scheduled flights today (Wednesday, 18 November 2009) with full service expected to return to normal by the end of the week.

On Wednesday, a little less than half of the flights will be operated. Approximately 150 of the 200 flights will be flown on Thursday and all flights are expected to fly according to schedule on Friday.

Altogether Finnair has cancelled over 500 flights because of the strike. The cancelled flights have affected more than 40,000 passengers. 

Finnair was able to operate most of its leisure flights despite the strike. Leisure flights were operated by Finnair's management pilots and with the help of leasing arrangements.

Finnair customers whose flights have been cancelled are advised first to contact the travel agent from which they booked their tickets.

Finnair can also provide telephone service to customers on the numbers: +358 800 9 3466 and +358 600 140 140.
