Finnair is to add extra flights to Finland from the UK and Ireland over the Christmas period.
The airline will add seven more flights from London Heathrow to Helsinki from 17 December to 2 January, plus a new weekend return service starting on 27 November.
It will also operate an additional return flight on 3, 10, 17 December and on 7 January 2022 from both Manchester and Dublin to the Finnish capital.
The London to Helsinki route will also see the reintroduction of twin-aisle aircraft from December.
Andrew Fish, Finnair General Manager UK, Ireland & Benelux, said: “We’re excited to continue our recovery and re-establish our popular frequencies from the UK and Ireland in line with customer demand for flights to Finland over the festive season.
“Finnair customers will be able to enjoy further flight flexibility when travelling for business or leisure from London to Helsinki, thanks to extra capacity for travellers eager to experience Finland’s winter period.
“We’re also pleased to be introducing extra seats on our Manchester and Dublin services to Helsinki to provide greater regional connectivity from the north of England and for our Irish customers.”
Finnair said passengers visiting Lapland will also benefit from increased connections onto its domestic network, including ‘the home of Santa Claus’ in Rovaniemi, as well as Kittilä and Ivalo further north above the Arctic Circle.
