Russia-Finland sign joint air aggreement

Russian and Finnish air carriers are pooling their efforts in building up the volume of transportation between St. Petersburg and Helsinki. The leadership of the Pulkovo and Finnair companies will sign on Monday an agreement on joint running of the airline linking the city on the Neva River with the Finnish capital.

Starting from May 14 flights of the Pulkovo airline and 17 flights of Finnair will be performed weekly between Petersburg and Helsinki.

The agreement on joint exploitation of the Petersburg-Helsinki air route based on code sharing will make it possible to organise more comfortable and quicker transfer both for transit passengers flying from St. Petersburg via Helsinki to Scandinavia, Europe, America and Southeast Asia and those who arrive from Finland in the city on the Neva and are going to travel across Russia.
