Finnair and airberlin expand cooperation
Monday 11, October 2010
Finnair and airberlin have agreed to start code-share cooperation. The cooperation in the first phase covers the routes between Germany and Finland.
Finnair will place its code on airberlin flights between Finland and Germany and beyond to Nürnberg, Hannover, Köln, Salzburg in Austria and Palma de Mallorca in Spain.
airberlin will also place its code on all Finnair services between Germany and Finland. The code-share cooperation will start on 31/10/2010.
For Finnair, cooperation with airberlin will provide a stronger foothold in Central Europe, which will support Finnair's Asian strategy significantly. airberlin's network covers the area of Europe with the highest purchasing power. For airberlin customers the cooperation will lead to numerous new, fast connections from German-speaking Central Europe via Helsinki to Asia. Finnair will provide for business passengers a competitive alternative, which will boost Finnair´s corporate sales in an important market, says Hannu Sundberg, Finnair's VP, Airline Partnerships.
For Finnair's Finnish customers, closer cooperation with airberlin will also open up new destinations in both German-speaking Europe and the Mediterranean area. airberlin is Germany's second largest airline and Finnair's future oneworld partner.
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.
