Finnair to Increase London Heathrow Flights

Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Monday, 10 February 2014

Finnair is increasing the number of flights it operates to London Heathrow from four to five times daily.

Effective 30 March 2014, flight AY995 will depart Helsinki at 16:30 for arrival in London three hours later at 17:30 local time, while AY996 will depart London at 18:35 and arrive in Helsinki at 00:35 local time.

The new frequency will be flown primarily with Finnairs new Airbus A321 aircraft, which are equipped with fuel-efficient Sharklet wingtip devices and operate within Heathrows strictest noise parameters.

In addition to its own five daily frequencies, Finnair offers two daily codeshare roundtrips operated by fellow oneworld partner British Airways.

The new frequency enables even greater connectivity not just with London and other destinations in the UK and Ireland, but with North America as well.

London is one of the great global cities and always in demand, and we are very pleased to be able to add more capacity to the thriving Helsinki-London route, said Gregory Kaldahl, Finnairs SVP Resource Management. This fills out our current scheduling very nicely, improving connectivity to London while adding more flight options for those travelling across the Atlantic as well. The new frequency also enhances the ability of firms to conduct business in London or Helsinki and make return journeys in a single day.
