On Thursday (May 27, 2021), Air France announced the launch of new year-round service to Helsinki from Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport starting July 6, 2021. The route will be operated up to one time daily with a 143-seat Airbus A319. Initially, the route will start with four weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, increasing to a daily frequency from July 19, 2021. The flight departs Paris-CDG at 13:00 and arrives in Helsinki at 17:00, while the return flight leaves Helsinki at 17:45 and arrives Paris-CDG at 19:50 (all times local). The new flights are in addition to those operated by Finnair on the route and codeshared with Air France.


The new service completes Air France’s offer in the Nordics and complements existing service to Copenhagen and Billund (Denmark), Oslo and Bergen (Norway) and Stockholm and Gothenburg (Sweden). Helsinki is Finland’s vibrant capital city located on the country’s southern tip. The city offers exceptional architecture and is famous for its design district, fine dining culture and laid-back lifestyle. Helsinki can serve as a starting point for travelers wishing to explore other regions in Finland such as the Lapland and the Kvarken archipelago, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Air France customers can book with confidence, as the carrier offers fully modifiable tickets for travel through December 31, 2021. Reservations can be changed free of charge and customers can request a refundable credit voucher if they no longer wish to travel. If the flight is canceled by Air France, customers can postpone their trip, request a full ticket refund, or choose a credit voucher, which is also refundable if not used.
