Finnair and Finncomm Airlines continue their cooperation


Finnair and Finncomm Airlines have entered into a commercial agreement on cooperation in this winter season's flight traffic.


"I am delighted that we have found a good solution for the coming winter traffic season. This is certainly good news also for our Finnish customers. We have been satisfied with our years-long cooperation with Finncomm," says Finnair's President & CEO Mika Vehviläinen. 


Under the code-share agreement with Finnair, Finncomm will fly the Turku, Tampere and Tallinn flights, as it has to date, and will also fly as a new service the Jyväskylä route, six times per day. Also on the Joensuu, Kuopio and Vaasa routes, Finncomm will fly some of the code-share flights. In addition, cooperation will cover the Norrköping route. 


Finncomm Airlines' route network also includes Kokkola, Kemi, Seinäjoki, Savonlinna and Varkaus. Finncomm's timetable interlinks well with the timetables of Finnair's international scheduled traffic. 


"Good connections will be maintained from domestic airports to Helsinki and via Helsinki to Finnair's international network. Finncomm knows the challenges and opportunities of domestic air traffic. With our own structure, we can cost-competitively complement Finnair's network," explains Finncomm Airlines' CEO Juhani Pakari. 


The new commercial agreement replaces the previously announced agreement between Finnair and the airline Flybe on the arrangement of feeder traffic. Nevertheless, negotiations on cooperation with Flybe in other traffic will continue. 


At the same time, Finnair and Finncomm have signed a preliminary agreement on ownership arrangements through which Finncomm's current ownership structure will change. Finnair's objective is to acquire a minority shareholding in the Finncomm Group. A strengthening of the ownership structure through new investors will also be pursued.
