Finnair to open scheduled routes to Phuket, Krabi

It will also reopen Helsinki-Tromsø from January 1 next year

In the upcoming 2014-2015 winter season, Finnair says it will introduce scheduled services to Krabi and Phuket in Thailand. Both of these destinations have previously been served only on a charter basis.

Flights to Phuket will be operated three times a week from November 14 and to Krabi twice a week from December 10. Finnair will use an Airbus A340 on both routes.

In related news, Finnair says that its number of flights to Nagoya in Japan will increase from four to five a week. The additional frequency is scheduled to depart on Tuesdays in November-December and Wednesdays in January-March.

Additionally, the airline will reopen its service from Helsinki to Tromsø in the far north of Norway, three times a week from January 1 to March 28, 2015. This route will be operated by Flybe Finland with an Embraer E90.
