    Finnair lancerer to nye ruter til CAN og FUK (pun intended).

    Finnair expands its Asian network, opens routes to Fukuoka and Guangzhou in summer 2016

    Finnair continues to expand its Asian traffic, opening two Asian destinations, Fukuoka in Japan and Guangzhou in China for the summer season, 2016.


    "We intend to double our Asian traffic by 2020 from the 2010 baseline, and these new destinations are an important step towards this target," says Pekka Vauramo, Finnair President and CEO. "We have a long tradition of connecting Asia and Europe with smooth fast connections via our Helsinki hub, and I look forward to expanding our network to these two exciting markets."



    Finnair will open a direct route to Fukuoka in southern Japan in spring 2016, with three weekly frequencies. The service to Fukuoka makes Finnair the only European airline to operate to four different cities in Japan - Finnair currently offers daily connections to Tokyo Narita, Nagoya and Osaka.


    Fukuoka is one of the largest cities in Japan. Besides being a multicultural metropolis and an important trade city, Fukuoka offers warm weather, rich history, architecture, art, shopping and cuisine, attracting visitors from all over Europe. The service to Fukuoka is part of the joint business between Finnair, British Airways and Japan Airlines, which enables offering more connections and flexibility for the airlines' customers in traffic between Japan and Europe.

    Finnair will also open a direct route to China, and will fly direct from its Helsinki hub to Guangzhou in China with four weekly frequencies between May 6 and October 29, 2016. Guangzhou is the third largest city in China, with a population of 13 million. It is a major trade and transportation center, and the main manufacturing hub in one of mainland China's leading commercial and manufacturing regions.


    Guangzhou is Finnair's sixth destination in Greater China. Finnair has year-round services to Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong and Shanghai, and a summer service to Xi'an.

    Both destinations will be served with Finnair's Airbus A330 aircraft. Finnair connects Fukuoka and Guangzhou to over 60 destinations via its Helsinki hub, with timetables designed for transfer traffic.

    Jeg fløj med Finnair i 2008 til CAN, umiddelbart inden de lukkede ruten ned. De havde kampagnepriser i de sidste måneder, hvor man kunne flyve CPH-CAN retur i business for 7500 kr. Det var i øvrigt med den legendariske MD-11 fra HEL til CAN og tilbage!

    FUK er lidt interessant, fordi KLM bare for få dage siden har meddelt, at man trækker sig på ruten - se http://airlineroute.net/2015/10/02/kl-fuk-jan16cxld/
