Finnair Launches Seasonal Nonstop Flights From San Francisco to Helsinki

Finnair Editorial

In line with its growth strategy, Finnair has announced that it has opened a new seasonal route from Helsinki to San Francisco beginning June 1, 2017. The airline will operate three weekly flights between both cities from June 1 to September 30 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Thanks to Helsinki’s geographical location, Finnair’s new northern route to San Francisco will offer competitive travel times for customers from Scandinavia, the Baltics, Russia and many other European cities. San Francisco will be Finnair's fourth US destination, along with New York, Chicago and Miami. The new San Francisco flight will be operated within the Atlantic joint business between Finnair, American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia. The joint business offers customers additional flight choices, better connections and better pricing on transatlantic routes. Currently, the four airlines operate over 100 daily return flights between Europe and North America.

Finnair will also add capacity to Spain by opening a new route to Alicante with up to four weekly flights between March 26 and October 27. In addition, Finnair will increase its flights to Malaga with two additional weekly flights between June and July, increasing frequencies to a total of eleven weekly flights. Last month, Finnair announced new routes to Ibiza and Menorca for the summer 2017 season.
