Finnair and Sabena’s successor, Belgian airline SN Brussels Airlines, will start cooperation on the services between Helsinki and Brussels on June 4, 2002. All the frequencies between the two cities will have both AY and SN flight numbers. The airlines will now have five daily frequencies between Helsinki and Brussels on weekdays, two on Saturdays and three on Sundays. Furthermore, Finnair will sell seats under its own flight number on the SN Brussels Airlines routes from Helsinki via Brussels to Italy, France and Switzerland.
Milan, Venice, Turin and Bologna are the new code-share destinations in Italy, Lyon in France and Geneva in Switzerland. Milan flights will connect with Finnair and SN Brussels Airlines services on the Helsinki-Brussels-Helsinki route two times a day and the other flights three times a day.
Check-in for Helsinki flights in Brussels will take place at the operating carrier’s check-in desk. All the Finnair and SN Brussels Airlines flights, except for the Geneva flights, depart and arrive at the new A- Pier at Brussels Airport, which was opened yesterday. Geneva flights are operated from Terminal-B.
