Finnair announces extra flights from Scotland and Ireland

Finnair will add more flights from both Edinburgh and Dublin to meet increased demand during the winter.

As a result, the airline will operate up to six weekly flights to Helsinki from Edinburgh and up to nine weekly flights from Dublin, with connections to services across Asia and the Far East departing in the afternoon and evening.

Andrew Fish, Finnair general manager UK, Ireland and Benelux, said: "The UK and Ireland are key markets for Finnair so we know our customers will appreciate extra flights and more seats on services from Edinburgh and Dublin.

"We are adding nearly 10% more capacity to the Edinburgh route, which equates to 25 additional flights. Throughout the winter period, our Dublin customers can benefit from an extra 13%- or 168 - flights in total, adding 13,561 additional seats between Dublin and Helsinki.

"The capacity boost enables Finnair to offer even more flexibility and easier network connections for our customers travelling from Scotland and the Republic of Ireland to destinations across the Far East and Asia, including our new fifth Japanese service to Sapporo launching on 15 December."

Finnair also offers up to seven daily flights from London Heathrow to Helsinki, as well as flights from a number of regional airports across the UK and Ireland.
