Finnair has just announced the addition of a fifth weekly flight to the new Reykjavik route, which will begin service on April 11, 2017. The new, additional flight will depart Wednesdays between May 31 and August 11.

The Reykjavik route will become a year-round destination with three weekly frequencies during the winter service. The flights are to be complemented by flights operated by Icelandair, with whom Finnair has a code-share agreement.

In addition to the Reykjavik route additions, Finnair has also announced a variety of other capacity increases on several of its popular, European short-haul routes for 2017, thanks to its recently implemented growth strategy.

The airline is increasing its capacity in Denmark, with the addition of daily frequency on weekdays to Copenhagen and a larger aircraft on the airlines Billund route. Beginning May 14, five weekly flights will be added year-round to the Copenhagen route, including a morning flight which will enable convenient day trips to Helsinki for business passengers. The additions are leading to a 21 percent increase in the Copenhagen route capacity for 2017. The aircraft switch on the Billund flights, from an E90 aircraft to an Airbus A319 is increasing that capacity by 11 percent.

In addition to the increased frequencies and capacities to Iceland and Denmark, Finnair is also adding a third daily frequency to Vilnius on weekdays, available year-round starting May 15; a daily frequency addition to Warsaw for the peak summer season, from June 5 to August 4; an additional weekly frequency to Dublin for the winter 2017 season; and will be extending the Saturday flight to Alanya-Gazipasa, Turkey, through the middle of December 2017.
