Wednesday 1, December 2010
The Finnish Cabin Crew Union's (SLSY) strike notably affects Finnair's flight traffic on Wednesday.
On Tuesday over 110 flights which affected around 6,000 passengers. Approximately 200 of Wednesdays flights will also be cancelled which affects around 10,000 passengers.
"We do our very best to take good care of our customers. We are very sorry for all the inconvenience the situation causes among our customers," says Finnair's SVP Customer Service Anssi Komulainen.
Information and instructions to passengers are updated continually at the address www.finnair.com/info. A personal text message will be sent to the passengers of cancelled flights. For this, it is important that the current telephone number is included in flight bookings. Passengers can check this by following the instructions given on the information page.
Regardless of the strike, every effort will be made to operate Finnair's leisure flights normally. Leisure flights are mainly charter flights for the needs of tour operators.
Of scheduled flight destinations in Finland, Finnair flies during the strike to Oulu, Kuopio, Vaasa, Joensuu, Rovaniemi, Kajaani and Kuusamo. There will also be a service to Ivalo and Kittilä from Thursday to Sunday. Elsewhere in Europe, flights take place to Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Düsseldorf, London, Paris and Brussels during the strike. Of long-haul flights, a daily service to Bangkok takes place. The timetables of all flights and the number of flights to destinations may deviate from normal and changes may occur. More detailed information about flights is updated continually at the address www.finnair.com/info.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
