Finnair updates flights, adds Mumbai service
Finnair has updated its summer 2022 flights, as the closure of Russian airspace impacts existing Asian traffic.
While 40 weekly flights to various Japan airports will be suspended and the start of Finnair’s new Busan route will be postponed, the airline will add Mumbai to its operations. The latter will be operated three times a week, with tickets to go on sale from April 5.
Finnair continues to operate daily connections to Bangkok, Delhi, Singapore and Tokyo, three weekly flights to Seoul, two weekly flights to Hongkong, and one weekly service to Shanghai.
Travellers will benefit from Finnair’s services across the US and Europe. In the US, the airline launched a new route to Dallas Fort Worth on March 27, with four weekly flights and full connectivity to American Airline’s extensive network in the country. Another new route, Seattle, opens on June 1 with three weekly frequencies.
According to chief commercial officer Ole Orvér, the airline will increase summer services to over 300 daily flights.
“We continue to serve our key Asian destinations despite the longer routings caused by Russian airspace closure, and also have an excellent offering in Europe and North America.”
