Finnair restarts flights to second Chinese city

Flights to the Chinese port city of Guangzhou are being restarted by Finnair after a gap of more than two years due to the pandemic.

A direct weekly Aribus A350 service from Helsinki is being relaunched on September 6.

Finnair also runs flights on a weekly basis to China’s largest city of Shanghai, as well as a range of Asian cities, including Tokyo and Bangkok.

The carrier serves Helsinki from Heathrow, Manchester, Dublin and Edinburgh, with connections to China and other long-haul destinations.

Transfer passengers have required Chinese Covid-19 testing available at Helsinki airport.

Finnair chief commercial officer Ole Orver said: “We are excited to return to Guangzhou and look forward to gradually increasing our offering for the Chinese market.”
