Finnair has announced plans to fly to nearly 100 destinations in Asia, Europe and the US in summer 2022.

The season will begin on March 27, 2022, and will include new long-haul routes to Busan in South Korea, Tokyo Haneda and Dallas in the US.

In Asia, Finnair will resume service to Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo “if travel restrictions allow”, while also adding a new service to Tokyo’s Haneda airport.

The airline will also serve the Japanese city of Sapporo as a summer destination for the first time with two weekly frequencies, increase flights to Osaka to double daily in June, and fly to Fukuoka in southern Japan three times per week. Altogether, the carrier will fly up to 40 weekly flights between Helsinki and Japan next summer.

Ole Orver, CCO of Finnair, commented:

“Before the pandemic, Japan was our single largest market outside our home market Finland, and we look forward to returning to all our five destinations in Japan. We are also opening a new route to Busan in South Korea, demonstrating our continuous commitment to offering the best and most sustainable connections between Europe and Asia via our Helsinki hub.”

The airline will also fly to Shanghai and daily to Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore and Bangkok, with additional daily flights to Delhi from June. The new Busan route will be launched in March with three weekly frequencies.

Meanwhile, Finnair will add the Dallas route to the North American network from February 7 – this will be operated four times weekly, offering connections to further destinations via Finnair’s partner American Airlines.

Orver added:

“We are also pleased to strengthen our network in the US by adding Dallas as a new destination. Our customers will be able to enjoy great connections to other cities in North America through the extensive network of our alliance partner, American Airlines.”

In Europe, Finnair will offer connections from Helsinki to over 70 European cities including the new destinations of Zagreb in Croatia and Larnaca in Cyprus.

Customers will be able to experience the expansion of Helsinki Airport next month, which will include a new Terminal 2 entrance, arrivals hall and travel centre. A new security control and check-in area will follow in summer 2022.
