Finnair continues its strategy of making its Helsinki hub the gateway to Asia with the launch of two new routes, to Fukuoka and Guangzhou.
Finnair will launch a direct route from Helskini to Fukuoka in southern Japan in May 2016, with three weekly flights.
The service to Fukuoka makes Finnair the only European airline to fly to four cities in Japan, the others being Tokyo Narita, Nagoya and Osaka.
Finnair will launch a direct route to Guangzhou in China with four weekly flights between 6 May and 29 October 2016.
Guangzhou is Finnair’s sixth destination in Greater China. Finnair has year-round services to Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong and Shanghai, and a summer seasonal service to Xi’an.
Both destinations will be served with Finnair’s Airbus A330 aircraft, in a two class (economy and business) and configuration.
Finnair’s flight to Fukuoka will be part of the British Airways, Finnair and Japan Airlines joint-venture, and passengers of the respective airlines will be able to book this flight, and onward connections.
