Finnair hops into spring with super schedule

Finnair is hopping into spring with its biggest schedule since 2020, as the airline continues to recover its network and prepares for a busy summer.

During March, the carrier is expected to operate over 8,500 flights, the highest number since February 2020, according to data from the aviation analytics firm Cirium.

The number of scheduled Finnair flights in March 2023 is up by nearly a third (29%) compared to the same period last year, as the Nordic carrier restores routes around the world.

To complement the bumper schedule, Finnair is set to launch four new routes this spring, as the airline gears up for summer, offering customers a greater choice of destinations.

Customers looking to return to Japan can make use of the airline’s outstanding Osaka service which will relaunch on 26 March, while those flying to destinations around Europe can enjoy new services to Bodø, Ljubljana and Milan Linate.

Anssi Partanen, Finnair Market Director UK & Ireland, said: “It is great to see our spring schedule taking shape with the highest number of flights since February 2020.

“As we expand our network, we are also excited to welcome back destinations such as Osaka and Ljubljana, which we know will prove popular with our customers.

“With our centenary approaching later this year, we look forward to offering our customers a greater choice of flights to their favourite destinations across the globe.”

The network expansion means Finnair will serve 19 long-haul destinations this year across North America, Asia and the Middle East.

From 26 March, Finnair will also introduce their elevated long-haul experience on flights to Chicago, Delhi and Hong Kong, as the airline continues to refit its fleet of widebody aircraft with brand new cabins.
