For the summer of 2017, Finnair will be adding four new short-haul routes.
Between early April and late October, Finnair will fly between Helsinki and the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik. The flight will be operated alongside codeshare-partner Icelandair’s flights between the two cities. This new route will offer travelers one of the fastest options between Iceland and the handful of Asian destinations Finnair serves.
New weekly flights to Corfu, Menorca and Ibiza will also be introduced. Corfu and Menorca will be flown on Sundays and Ibiza on Saturdays.
Additionally, Finnair will increase capacity between Finland and the UK. Flights to Edinburgh will be flown up to five times a week and the morning flights to London Heathrow will now be operated with Finnair’s brand new Airbus A350 XWBs.
The Irish capital Dublin will now be served up to nine times a week using s mix of Airbus A319s and Embraer E190s.
“Reykjavik is a fantastic tourist destination and we are very pleased to be able to offer this exciting route to our customers as well as the additional weekly frequencies to other great summer destinations,” says Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer, Finnair. “All in all, these announcements fit in very nicely with our growth strategy and we are confident our customers will be very happy with these new additions.”
