Finnair to Add New Russia Flight Connections

Finnair Editorial

Finnair has just announced it will be offering more connections to Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia, further improving the airline’s connectivity with Finnair’s network in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Beginning April 10, 2017, Finnair will be doubling its flights between Helsinki and Moscow by adding a once-daily frequency, which smoothly connects to flights arriving from Asia, Europe and the Americas to Helsinki. The flight from Moscow to Helsinki will connect with Finnair’s Hong Kong and Singapore flights, in addition to a number of flights within Finland. The addition brings Finnair’s total flight frequencies between Moscow and Helsinki to 14 flights a week, offering up to four daily flights in co-operation with Aeroflot Russian Airlines. The new flights will be operated with Embraer 190 aircrafts.

As of April 23, 2017, Finnair is adding six weekly frequencies between Helsinki and St. Petersburg, bringing the weekly connections to 20 flights. The new flights will connect into Finnair’s broad European network of over 70 destinations, allowing customers to connect via Helsinki to Europe in the morning and return from Europe in the evening. The new connection is operated with ATR aircraft.

Both of the new additions will be available year round.

“These new flights support even better connections for the increased number of travelers between Russia and the U.S. via Helsinki, and also offer our Russian customers full improved connectivity to our European and Asian services”, says Juha Järvinen, Finnair’s chief commercial officer.

Next summer, Finnair will open its new San Francisco route, while the winter of 2017/2018 will see the introduction of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico and Havana in Cuba into its network. The additions will also support connections as well.
