Finnair will increase the number of flights it operates from Helsinki to London Heathrow from four to five times daily. This enables even greater connectivity with London and other destinations in the UK and Ireland, and also with North America. After Finnair entered the joint business on transatlantic traffic with fellow oneworld partners American Airlines, Iberia and British Airways last summer, Finnair has seen a growing demand for North American services via London. From Helsinki, London is a convenient transfer point for onward connections on a single ticket to more than a dozen cities in North America.
Finnair's SVP Resource Management Gregory Kaldahl says that the new frequency also enhances the ability of firms to conduct business in London or Helsinki and make return journeys in a single day. In addition to its own five daily frequencies, Finnair offers two daily codeshare roundtrips operated by fellow oneworld partner British Airways.
