Finnair has announced plans to launch new routes to Reykjavik, Corfu, Menorca and Ibiza, starting in summer 2017.
Between April 11 and October 28, Finnair will fly four weekly flights to Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital. Reykjavik is within a short day trip to many of Iceland’s spectacular sights; including the well-known Golden Circle route, which comprises highlights such as the roaring Gullfoss falls, the geothermally-active Haukadalur valley and the world-famous Geysir geyser. Finnair’s new route to Reykjavik will complement the airline’s pre-existing code share on services operated by partner Icelandair, the airline said. Once opened, Finnair’s route will offer connections between Asia and Iceland.
Finnair will also fly weekly to Corfu, Greece, and Menorca, Spain, on Sundays. Between June 17 and August 12, Finnair will also operate a new weekly flight to Ibiza, Spain, on Saturdays.
Finnair is also increasing its capacity in the UK market for the summer 2017 season, as it will continue its Edinburgh route with up to five weekly flights. Additionally, Finnair’s morning flights to and from London will fly with Airbus A350 aircraft during the summer 2017 season.
Finnair will also increase its flight capacity to Dublin, Ireland. As of March 27, 2017, Finnair will fly up to nine weekly flights between Helsinki and Dublin, operating a mix of A319 and E90 aircraft during the 2017 summer season.
