Finnair to increase Heathrow-Helsinki service

Finnair is increasing its services from Heathrow to Helsinki this winter to three a day, to cater for increased demand.

In September, the Finnish carrier has two daily frequencies between London and Helsinki, rising to three from October 1.

Economy class fares start from £64 one-way and £108 return.

The extra flights are part of a raft of increased services across its network from the Finnish capital to cities in Europe, Asia and North America for the upcoming winter season.

With Finnish Lapland continuing to attract winter travellers, Finnair offers four daily connections to Rovaniemi, Ivalo and Kittilä, and two daily services to Kuusamo, with connections from Helsinki.

Elsewhere in Europe, it will increase its flights to offer double-daily services to Amsterdam, Munich, Dusseldorf, Berlin and Frankfurt, and three daily frequencies to Paris.

Finnair’s Osaka service resumes in October, and it will serve Chicago, previously a summer route, throughout the winter season.

Ole Orvér, chief commercial officer at Finnair, said: “We are also re-introducing services to support a smooth and convenient travel experience. We opened our Schengen lounge already in August, and Finnair’s non-Schengen lounge at Helsinki airport will open in early October.”
