Finnair has announced their summer 2022 flying program which will include service to nearly 100 destinations, including new routes to Busan in South Korea, Tokyo-Haneda and Dallas in the U.S., as well as first-ever summer service to Sapporo in Japan.
On Tuesday (November 9, 2021), Finnair announced their summer 2022 flying program, which will include nearly 100 destinations in Asia, the U.S., and Europe from March 27, 2022. The carrier will open new long-haul routes to Busan in South Korea, Tokyo-Haneda and Dallas in the U.S., as well as first-ever summer service to Sapporo in Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan. If travel restrictions allow, Finnair will resume service all five pre-pandemic destinations they served in Japan, including Tokyo-Narita, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo, plus new Tokyo-Haneda service. In total, Finnair will offer up to 40 weekly flights between Helsinki and Japan for summer 2022, with daily flights to both Tokyo-Narita and Haneda, for a total of 14 weekly frequencies. The airline will also offer daily service to Nagoya and Osaka, and will introduce double-daily flights to Osaka in June. The new summer service to Sapporo will be operated twice-weekly and flights to Fukuoka in southern Japan will be offered three times per week.
In Tuesday’s announcement, Finnair’s Chief Commercial Officer, Ole Orvér, said,
“We look forward to the world continuing opening again. Before the pandemic, Japan was our single largest market outside our home market Finland, and we look forward to returning to all our five destinations in Japan. We are also opening a new route to Busan in South Korea, demonstrating our continuous commitment to offering the best and most sustainable connections between Europe and Asia via our Helsinki hub. We are also pleased to strengthen our network in the US by adding Dallas as a new destination. Our customers will be able to enjoy great connections to other cities in North America through the extensive network of our alliance partner, American Airlines.”
Finnair also connects customers to key Asian megacities, including flights to Shanghai, and daily service to Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore and Bangkok, as well as daily service to Delhi from June 2022. The new service to Busan in Korea will launch in March with three weekly frequencies. In North America, Finnair will fly to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, with new four-times weekly flights to Dallas from February 7, 2022. Finnair guests traveling to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) will enjoy seamless onward connections via the carrier’s partner, American Airlines.
With the growth of intercontinental traffic, Finnair is also strengthening their European network from Helsinki with convenient connections to over 70 European cities, including new service to Zagreb and Larnaca. The carrier also offers double-daily flights to key European gateways such as Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Vienna, Zürich, Gdansk and Milan, and will offer even more daily frequencies to Paris, London, Berlin, Warsaw, Brussels and St. Petersburg, as well as the Scandinavian and Baltic cities.
