Finnair launches free Finland stopovers

Throw in a foodie or Northern Lights tour
Finnair has launched a free stopover program, similar to the one Icelandair has been using to successfully fly more passengers via Reykjavík. Now flights can be booked via Helsinki with the option of spending up to five days in Finland at no extra cost.
To ease the booking process, Finnair is working with tour operator Finland Tours to create layover itineraries of different lengths, from a few hours to a few days. These vary in focus from food to shopping to Northern Lights trips in Lapland.
However, when Travel + Leisure searched for Finnair flights from New York to Paris with a three-day Helsinki stopover, these appeared only to be available on midweek departures, while flights with no stopover could be booked for any day. Nevertheless the price stayed constant.
