The Finnish flag carrier will now operate non-stop long-haul services from Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport to Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand, and Miami in the US for the winter season 2021/2022.
All three routes will be operated by the airline’s Airbus A350 aircraft.
Ole Orvér, Finnair Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are excited to meet the travel needs of our Swedish customers with a non-stop service from Arlanda to Thailand and Miami, which are among the top winter holiday destinations for Swedes.”
