Direct route from Helsinki Airport to Singapore starts today


Finnair opens direct flights from Helsinki Airport to pulsating Singapore today, May 30. Daily flights are the fastest connection between Northern Europe and Singapore.


"Finnair's Asian strategy has worked extremely well," says Finnair CEO Mika Vehviläinen. "The Singapore route will strongly support our core strategy as well as serving our main target group of customers travelling between Asia and Europe on business."


Singapore is the tenth scheduled destination from Helsinki Airport to Asia. Finnair is the only airline which offers daily connections between Singapore and Northern Europe according to a timetable devised especially for the needs of business travelers.


"The new route to Singapore gives splendid support to Helsinki Airport's position as the leading long haul hub in Northern Europe," says Helsinki Airport’s director Juha-Pekka Pystynen.


The route offers excellent onward connections from both Helsinki and Singapore. For Asian customers it opens up connections to the 50-strong European destination network served by Finnair.


Customers traveling onwards through Singapore can connect with flights offered as part of Finnair's partner network to Australia and Singapore's neighbours, Malaysia and Indonesia, for example, with the potential for fabulous holiday trips to these and other countries.


The flights are being operated using Finnair's state-of-the-art Airbus A340 aircraft.
