Finnair to boost European leisure routes for summer 2019

Further strengthening its summer holiday offering for leisure customers, Finnair will open three new routes - to Bologna, Bordeaux and Porto - for the peak summer season.

In addition, capacity will also be added to popular summer destinations.

Finnair will fly up to three weekly flights to Bologna, Italy, between April 10th-October 18th.

Bologna is well known for its gastronomy and wine scene.

In addition, the city is an easy gateway to several other popular Italian cities and regions.


Some of the flights offer excellent connections to Finnair’s customers traveling from and to Finnair’s Asian destinations.

Finnair will fly up to two weekly flights to Bordeaux, France, between May 11th-September 14th.

Often referred to as the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux is also recognised for its food and wine scene as well as its historic centre which is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Finnair will fly two weekly flights to Porto, Portugal, between June 21st-August 12th.

Located on the coast of northern Portugal, Porto is Portugal’s second largest city and it is the famous home of Port wine.

This route opening follows the successful launch of flights to Lisbon in 2018.

All three new routes will be operated with an A319 aircraft via Helsinki.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer these three new routes for leisure travellers next summer,” said Juha Järvinen, chief commercial officer at Finnair.

“The three cities and surrounding areas have plenty to offer our customers and we fully expect the routes to be popular with food enthusiasts as all three regions are superb culinary and wine regions.”
