Finnair is bringing back flights to Nagoya, with two weekly frequencies from 30 May 2024.

The oneworld carrier will deploy an Airbus A350-900 on Helsinki-Nagoya every Thursday and Sunday, departing at 0015 and arriving in the Japanese city at 1905.

The Nagoya resumption will complement Finnair’s flights to Osaka and Tokyo Haneda and Narita. Pre-pandemic, the airline also served Fukuoka and had mounted seasonal flights to Sapporo.

Separate to its Nagoya news, Finnair this week also updated its winter 2024 schedule, adding flights to the British Isles, Iceland and leisure destinations in Portugal and the Canary Islands.

“We are delighted to resume our connection to Nagoya, where we used to fly before the pandemic. We already fly to Tokyo Haneda and Narita, as well as Osaka. In the summer season of 2024, we’ll have a total of twenty weekly frequencies to Japan,” said Ole Orver, chief commercial officer at Finnair.

“We will also have a very compelling leisure offering to popular holiday destinations for the winter season of 2024,” he continued.

From October 2024, Finnair will begin scheduled flights to three of its former charter destinations. There will be two weekly frequencies to each of Faro in Portugal, and Lanzarote and Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.

Finnair will also start deploying widebody aircraft to two popular leisure destinations, including three incremental frequencies to Dubai with the Airbus A330, and Las Palmas flights operated by the widebody Airbus A350.

Finnair is also adding more flights to the British Isles for the next winter season. Manchester will get five additional weekly frequencies, and Dublin and Edinburgh will both get two additional weekly flights. Separately, to Iceland, Finnair will add three more weekly services to Reykjavik.
