New destinations on Finnair summer schedule

Pisa, Biarritz and Alanya are among the destinations

Finnair’s summer schedule, coming into effect on March 30, includes flights to three new seasonal destinations from Helsinki: Pisa, Biarritz (twice weekly each) and three weekly flights to Alanya.

The airline is also adding more frequencies to Düsseldorf and Zürich (two to four), Antalya and Vaasa on Finland’s west coast. Flights to Xi´an in China continue on March 30 and to Hanoi in Vietnam on June 2.

Flights to Antalya operate in total eight times per week and most of the flights are during the daytime. Finnair says it is the only airline to operate scheduled non-stop flights from Finland to both Antalya and Alanya.

Vaasa will get an additional evening flight departing 18.10 from Helsinki, serving demand from the local business market. Finnair will then operate six daily flights to Vaasa.

To serve extra demand extra frequencies are also being added to Copenhagen, Dubrovnik, Malaga, Paris, Rome and Tel Aviv in the period from June to August.

Popular destinations returning to the summer schedule include Toronto, now operated with upgraded Airbus 330 aircraft from June 1 to September 21, and Chicago as a codeshare with oneworld partner American Airlines.

Finnair will also open a new route to Tromsø for the 2014 winter season, served from Helsinki three times a week from January 1 until March 28, 2014.
