Finnair, which has been consolidating its presence in Asia aggressively, is gearing up to raise the number of flights between Helsinki and Delhi to a daily service from today onwards.
The carrier will depart Helsinki, using the Airbus A330-300, at 2005 and arrive in Delhi at 0625. The return leg will depart at 1050 and arrive back in Helsinki at 1450.
The carrier decided to bump up frequencies on this route due to the growth in Asian traffic, which kept the carrier buoyant during the recession (see story here).
Towards the end of last year, frequencies on other Asian routes were also increased: the carrier now flies six times a week to Seoul, Nagoya and Osaka with plans to make those daily services from March 27 onwards (see story here). From June, the carrier will increase frequencies on the Helsinki-Hong Kong route to 12 times a week and mount a new flight to Singapore in May.
