Finnair plans Osaka service

Finnair is to begin flying between Helsinki and Osaka, Japan daily from the end of May. Finnair’s Helsinki-Nagoya return flights will also increase by one when frequencies are upped to four times a week from mid-June.

“Thanks to the additional frequencies, Finnair becomes the third largest western airline operating between Europe and Japan. Next summer Finnair will have two daily flights to Japan, when the current number of weekly flights goes up from 11 to 15 weekly operations,” said Finnair VP Network Strategies and Management Petteri Kostermaa.

The airline doubled its Tokyo flights from two to four a week last December.
