Finnair has reshuffled their route network for 2022 and unveiled plans to serve nearly 100 destinations in Asia, the US and Europe during the summer season, which begins on March 27, 2022.
This includes new long-haul routes to Busan in South Korea, Tokyo Haneda, Dallas in the US, and will add Sapporo as a new summer destination for the first time.
“We look forward to the world continuing opening again,” said Ole Orvér, chief commercial officer, Finnair.
“Before the pandemic, Japan was our single largest market outside our home market Finland, and we look forward to returning to all our five destinations in Japan.
The airlines operates daily flights to Tokyo Narita and Haneda, Nagoya and Osaka and will introduce double dailies to Osaka in June.
If travel restrictions allow, Finnair will resume service to all the five destinations in Japan it served before the pandemic – Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo – and launch a new service to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Finnair’s Sapporo route will be introduced for the summer season for the first time with two weekly frequencies, and Fukuoka in Southern Japan is served with three weekly flights.
Altogether, Finnair will fly up to 40 weekly flights between Helsinki and Japan in summer 2022.
“We are also opening a new route to Busan in South Korea, demonstrating our continuous commitment to offering the best and most sustainable connections between Europe and Asia via our Helsinki hub.”
The new Busan route in South Korea will be launched in March with three weekly frequencies.
Finnair connects customers to key Asian megacities, flying to Shanghai and daily to Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore and Bangkok. It will also offers daily flights to Delhi as of June.
“We are also pleased to strengthen our network in the US by adding Dallas as a new destination. Our customers will be able to enjoy great connections to other cities in North America through the extensive network of our alliance partner, American Airlines,” says Orvér.
In North America, Finnair will fly to Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, and open a route to Dallas as a new destination.
Dallas will be added to the network as of February 7th and will be operated four times a week, with excellent connections to Finnair’s partner American Airlines’ network.
As intercontinental traffic grows, Finnair will also strengthen its European network from Helsinki with smooth connections to more than 70 European cities, including new destinations Zagreb and Larnaca.
Finnair offers double daily flights to cities like Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Vienna, Zürich, Gdansk and Milan, and even more daily frequencies to Paris, London, Berlin, Warsaw, Brussels, St Petersburg as well as the Scandinavian and Baltic cities.
“We look forward to being able to serve more customers in a more personal way. I also look forward to updating you on some additional destinations and routes within the coming weeks,” concluded Orvér.
