Juneyao Air, Finnair enter into joint business partnership

Shanghai-based Juneyao Air and Finnair have agreed to start a joint business partnership on 1 July 2021.

The two carriers will cooperate commercially on flights between Helsinki and Shanghai as well points beyond, in China and Europe.

Finnair and Juneyao Air started a codeshare partnership in July 2019, when Juneyao Air launched its Shanghai-Helsinki route.

The joint business deepens the partnership, providing corporate and leisure customers with more flexible routing options, and enhanced benefits for frequent flyer members.

Finnair and Juneyao customers will benefit from consistent baggage allowances, integrated customer care and enhanced frequent flyer award point accrual across the two airlines.

Finnair customers will also benefit from improved connectivity to a network of 57 destinations in China from Juneyao's Shanghai Pudong hub.

Juneyao customers will also enjoy better access to Finnair's flight network of 65 European destinations via its Helsinki hub.

Finnair and Juneyao Air currently operate two flights per week between Helsinki and Shanghai and plan increasing frequencies as the pandemic situation allows.

Pre-pandemic, Finnair and Juneyao Air both operated daily flights between Helsinki and Shanghai. 

Zhao Hongliang, Juneyao Air Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are honoured to formalise this strategic partnership with Finnair to offer our customers a wider range of products and quality services."

"The joint business with Finnair will allow Juneyao Air to further strengthen its market in Europe, which is an important strategy in our global expansion."

A reciprocal agreement for Finnair Plus and Juneyao' Air Club frequent flyer members launched in August 2019.

Finnair is a member of the oneworld alliance.
