Finnair bolsters London-Helsinki services

Finnair will increase capacity on its schedule between London Heathrow and Helsinki this summer by over 20% with the addition of another daily departure and a change of aircraft on some services.

From March 31 it will operate a new daily 13.50 service from London – giving it up to seven departures a day – as well as deploying an Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft on several flights.

“Finnair’s presence in London and in the UK has been growing steadily over the past few years and we are pleased to add capacity on this important route for Finnair,” says Christian Lesjak, Finnair Senior Vice President, Network and Resource Management.

“By adding the new midday frequency and flying an additional wide-body aircraft on the route, we will be able to offer even more flexibility and network connections for our customers.”

The A330 will operate on the departing 16:00 service from Helsinki to London, and the returning 18:10 flight from London to Helsinki.

Meanwhile, the new flight will depart Helsinki at 11:40, with the return flight departing from London at 13:50 each day.

Fares from Heathrow start from £97 return in economy and £514 return in business, including taxes and charges.

Finnair flies between Asia, Europe and North America with an emphasis on fast connections via Helsinki, carrying more than ten million passengers annually and connecting 19 cities in Asia with more than 60 destinations in Europe.
