Finnair's growth in Asia continues, Singapore newest destination


Finnair will open a new route to pulsating Singapore. Finnair's daily flight will be one of the fastest links between Europe and Singapore.


“Finnair's Asian strategy has worked extremely well. Demand has continually strengthened and now is a good time to increase capacity and boost our market share in Asia's growing market. This new stage of our growth strategy will create many opportunities for us,” says Finnair's President & CEO Mika Vehviläinen. 


Finnair will be the only airline to offer a daily connection between Singapore and Northern Europe with a timetable that suits the needs of business passengers. 


 “Singapore is one of Asia's most important destinations for business passengers, because the Asian operations of many European companies are centred there. For Asian passengers, the Singapore route offers excellent onward connections via Finnair's route network to 50 European destinations,” adds Vehviläinen. 


Singapore is a convenient departure point for travelling to Australia and Southeast Asia using Finnair's comprehensive partner network. The Singapore route will also offer excellent leisure travel opportunities to Singapore and neighbouring countries, as Malaysia and Indonesia. 


Singapore's Changi Airport has been ranked as one of the world's finest airports and it offers outstanding facilities and services, especially for business travellers. 


Finnair will operate the Singapore service with Airbus A340 aircraft. The new route will be opened on 30 May 2011.
