Finnair adds capacity to Lisbon, Alanya and Brussels
Finnair is set to add flights between its Helsinki hub and Lisbon, Portugal and Alanya (Gazipasa), Turkey for the winter season 2018-2019.
The carrier opened its Lisbon route during the summer 2018 season, and the strong demand means it will now fly the route daily year-round. The frequencies added to the Lisbon route increase the capacity on this route by 70 per cent during the winter season.
Finnair is also adding flights to Alanya (Gazipasa), a popular holiday destination in Turkey, with services twice a week during the winter season (28 October 2018 to 31 March 2019). This is the first time a destination on the Turkish Mediterranean coast will now be available on Finnair scheduled flights year-round.
In addition, capacity will be added to Finnair’s Brussels route as of 31 October, when the airline will start to fly one of its daily frequencies, on both Wednesdays and Saturdays, with a wide-body Airbus A330. This change will offer added passenger and cargo capacity between both cities and an excellent business class product with full-flat seats for this busy route.
Juha Järvinen, the airline’s chief commercial officer, said: “These additions are a direct response to the strong demand and wishes from our customers and serve both our Nordic customers as well as our customers connecting from Asia.”
