Qatar Airways to open Helsinki-Doha route

Helsinki to strengthen “leading transit airport” role
Helsinki Airport says its “role as Northern Europe’s leading transit airport” will strengthen now that Qatar Airways has announced flights to Doha. The exact date for the opening will be revealed later.
“We are very much looking forward to the new connection because it will further expand Helsinki Airport’s comprehensive selection of flight connections and offer more varied connections from Finland to the Middle East, and to India, Africa and Australia”, said Joni Sundelin, senior vice president at Finnish airport operator Finavia. “The new flight route will also strengthen Helsinki Airport’s position as a transit hub.”
Part of the oneworld alliance, Qatar Airways offers connections from Doha in Qatar to more than 150 destinations on six continents. It won the World’s Best Airline award at the Skytrax Awards last year.
