Finnair is poised to restart passenger flights to Hong Kong on Thursday after a gap of five months.
A weekly flight from Helsinki to the Asian hub will operate initially using Airbus A350 aircraft.
The airline’s new premium economy cabin, renewed business class seat and revamped economy class will be introduced on the route from August 4.
The schedule has been timed to allow easy connections from Finnair’s UK and Ireland services, with return fares from London to Hong Kong starting at £484.
The carrier serves Helsinki from Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin.
