Palma de Mallorca, Antalya, Tel Aviv added to network
Finnair has announced new destinations and frequencies for the summer season. New to the network are Palma de Mallorca (starting June 5), Tel Aviv (from June 7) and Antalya in Turkey (also from June 7). The airline has already announced two new summer connections to Asia: to Hanoi from June 15 and Xi’an from June 14, both with three frequencies per week.
Finnair says that its Spanish routes are becoming increasingly attractive among both Spanish and Asian passengers, connecting via Helsinki on long-haul journeys. Frequencies on these routes are being increased in summer, when Finnair flies daily to Malaga and to Barcelona 10 times per week. Additionally, from June 7 to September 22, the carrier will serve Barcelona with double daily flights. Madrid flights will be operated daily and frequencies go up to 10 times per week from June 14 to July 30.
Other additional frequencies in the summer schedule include four weekly connections to Dubrovnik and Ljubljana as well to Krakow, where frequencies are doubling from the previous year. St Petersburg will be operated by Flybe Finland twice a day. Toronto in Canada will be served with five weekly flights between May 23 and September 8. Domestically, morning frequencies to Turku and Tampere are added, operated by Flybe Finland.
