As part of its growth strategy, Finnair has increased its capacity to several existing destinations in Germany.
From 26 March 2018, Finnair is adding a fourth daily frequency between Helsinki and Berlin.
Furthermore, there will be additional capacity to the German capital for the upcoming European Winter season by flying the route with a larger aircraft.
In total, Finnair will add more than 145,000 seats between both cities from now until the end of the European Summer 2018 season.
Finnair General Manager - Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, Geoff Stone said Finnair would also be adding capacity on many of its existing routes in Germany.
In total, Finnair has increased its capacity to Germany by 24% for 2018. Finnair currently flies daily to five German destinations including Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich. Last month, Finnair also announced that it will start flying daily to Stuttgart from 23 April 2018, making it the sixth destination in Germany for Finnair. Finnair’s flights to Germany have had a strong demand from customers travelling to and from Asia, Russia, the US and Baltics.
“We are a growing airline and we are looking forward to expanding our already strong footprint in Germany, which is a strategic focus market for us,” said Finnair Chief Commercial Officer, Juha Järvinen.
“We have also seen steady growth in demand for travel between Germany and Asia which is a great opportunity for us given our quick and efficient connecting hub at Helsinki Airport. In the past year alone, we have also seen strong double-digit sales growth between Asia and Germany, with travel to and from Japan especially strong.”
Travel between Asia and Europe is an important and growing market segment for Finnair. Finnair flies to 19 destinations in Asia and is the largest European carrier flying to Japan, with routes to Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka.
