New and extra flights added for Finnair's summer timetable
Monday 29, March 2010
Finnair's summer timetable comes into effect on Sunday March 28, 2010 and there will be plenty of extra flights to existing routes as well as the launch of an exciting new summer service to the city of Florence.
As of the beginning of June, Finnair operates daily flights to Tokyo, while flights to Nagoya will be boosted to five a week. Flights to Seoul in South Korea will be run six times a week during the summer.
Our new summer destination is Florence, where Finnair will be flying twice a week in cooperation with Meridiana. The popular seasonal destinations of Krakow, Venice, Ljubljana and Bergen will re-enter the schedule over the course of April and May. There will be other summer services added to the schedule,including five departures a week to Toronto, compared with just three weekly departures last summer.
Other significant additions include four new weekly flights to Manchester, with a twice-daily service operating through the summer. Flights to Warsaw are increased with two more departures, and there is an extra departure to Nice.
Departures to Hong Kong are being moved from evening to night slots, improving connections, for example, to and from southern China. Passengers can enjoy a light dinner in the new Via Lounge at Helsinki airport before the night flight, giving them more time to relax during the flight itself.
As the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games draw to a close, London 2012 organisers have been taking advantage of the final opportunity to experience and learn from an Olympic Games, before London becomes the next Olympic Host City.
As the 21st Winter Olympic Games wind down in Vancouver, my thoughts naturally turn to the 22nd Winter Olympic Games scheduled for February 7 through 23, 2014, in Sochi, Russia. 2014 will mark the first time that Russia will host the Winter Games – Moscow hosted the Summer Games in 1980.
Even in these difficult economic times, companies are still seeing value in business aviation and are looking to increase business jet travel in 2010.
