Finnair to Increase Cargo Capacity Between Helsinki and London Heathrow

Finnair will increase its cargo capacity between Helsinki and London Heathrow from the beginning of the winter season starting on 25 October 2015.

The airline will operate three weekly frequencies on the route with a wide-body aircraft, to facilitate the increased cargo demand on the route.

Finnair recently established its third cargo hub in London to better connect the United Kingdom with its extensive Asian network, and to offer improved connections for Finnair customers to North America utilizing the extensive cargo network of its partner IAG Cargo.

Finnair also has cargo hubs in Brussels, Belgium, and in Helsinki, Finland.

The added cargo capacity on the Helsinki-London route complements the freighter service Finnair and IAG Cargo share between the cities, as well as the 35 weekly frequencies with A320 series aircraft.

"Our customers value the reliability which comes from Finnair's world-class punctuality and reliability on scheduled flights and our commitment to offering the highest quality cargo handling. The added wide body capacity will be a great help in better connecting us with IAG Cargo's network," said Antti Kuusenmki, Head of Finnair Cargo.

Finnair Cargo will serve the London hub with wide-body aircraft on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays, and with freighter aircraft on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
