Finnair launches new flights to Goa

Finnair has announced that it will be adding the Indian coastal city of Goa to its winter schedule and adding extra frequencies to many other popular winter destinations.

The extra frequencies will make destinations in Asia even easier to reach for UK travellers.

Finnair will fly two weekly flights to Goa between November 29th, 2017, and March 21st, 2018, with flights being operated from Helsinki on Wednesdays and Sundays with an A330 aircraft.

Customers travelling from the UK are able to take advantage of fast connections at Finnair’s uncongested and award-winning hub, Helsinki Vantaa Airport.

In line with its growth strategy, Finnair will also boost capacity and improve flight schedules to Thailand during the winter 2017 season.


Two additional weekly frequencies will be added to the Bangkok route, bringing the total number of flights between Helsinki and Bangkok to 16 weekly.

Finnair will also adjust its schedule to offer a late evening flight between both cities giving additional flexibility for travellers.

Flight schedules for the Krabi and Phuket routes for winter 2017 have also been adjusted in order to enable more efficient connections for passengers flying from Helsinki.   

Finnair will also be adding two new frequencies to its Singapore route, making it a daily destination year-round, and three additional weekly frequencies to Hong Kong, making it a ten-weekly operation year-round.

In addition, Finnair will add a weekly frequency on its Delhi route, flying six times a week to the Indian capital during the winter season.

Finnair has also announced the addition of several long-haul services for the winter 2017 season to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, Havana in Cuba and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

“With the expected arrival of four additional new Airbus A350 aircraft in 2017, we are pressing ahead with our growth strategy,” said Juha Järvinen, chief commercial officer, Finnair.

“These newest additions will offer even more travel options and flexibility for our customers travelling between Europe, America and Asia through our efficient Helsinki airport hub which guarantees a short and smooth connection.”

Finnair flies from London Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh direct to Helsinki Vantaa Airport in Finland.
