Finnair to reopen route to Stuttgart in August
Tuesday 4, May 2010
In August, Finnair will reopen the flight route from Helsinki to Stuttgart, the capital of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Finnair will operate the route with ten flights per week from 16 August.
Morning flights from Helsinki to Stuttgart will depart on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at 07.45 and evening flights every day at around 17.00. The flights from Stuttgart to Helsinki will depart in the morning every day at 12.05 and in the evening on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays at around 19.00. The flights will be operated with a Finnair flight number by Finncomm Airlines using a 76-seat Embraer 170 jet aircraft.
The new service will connect well with Finnair's domestic routes. For residents of the Stuttgart area, the route offers, as well as a fast link to Finland, efficient onward connections to all of Finnair's Far-Eastern destinations.
In addition to the 11 million inhabitants of the state of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart Airport also serves the economic areas of northern Switzerland and eastern France. In addition to Stuttgart, important cities of the area include Baden Baden, Freiburg, Heilbronn, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Strasbourg and Ulm. For the traveller, Stuttgart is excellent base for visits to the Black Forest and the Rhine Valley and even for holiday trips to the Alps.
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.
