Scheduled flights to Antalya start on June 7th and the route will be operated twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.

Two weekly flights depart from Helsinki on Mondays and Fridays.

Finnair’s Spanish routes are becoming increasingly attractive among both Spanish and Asian passengers connecting via Helsinki on long haul journeys.

Additionally, during the peak season from June 7th to September 22nd, Finnair will serve Barcelona with double daily flights.

Other additional frequencies in the summer schedule include four weekly connections to Dubrovnik and Ljubljana as well to Krakow, where frequencies are doubling from the previous year.

St. Petersburg will be operated by Flybe Finland twice a day, and the flights have good connections to Finnair’s long-haul and domestic destinations.

Toronto in Canada will be served with five weekly flights between May 23rd and September 8th.

Domestically, morning frequencies to Turku and Tampere are added, which will significantly increase connectivity to long-haul flights as well as to Baltic and Nordic countries. Added frequencies will be operated by Flybe Finland.
