NEW YORK (November 12, 2009) – Finnair, the national carrier of Finland, will operate five non-stop flights per week between Toronto and Helsinki starting June 6, 2010. Finnair will offer all-economy class flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, leaving Toronto at 10:50 p.m., arriving in Helsinki at 2 p.m. the next afternoon. Return flights will depart Helsinki at 5:45 p.m., arriving in Toronto at 7:35 p.m. on the same day. This schedule will be in effect from June 6 to September 9, 2010.
As Michael Maass, Finnair’s Sales Director for North America points out, “This particular schedule will be excellent for travelers who want to take the shortest route to Asia – via Helsinki. The Toronto flights will connect very well with our scheduled service to Bangkok, Beijing, Delhi, Hong Kong, Nagoya, Osaka, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.”
This new schedule does not use the traditional connecting flights from Helsinki to destinations like Tallinn, Stockholm, Copenhagen etc., so we will see how the changed dynamics will work during the coming summer season.
The flights are already loaded into our reservation systems and can be booked for the summer travel.
