Finnair boosts UK-Russia connections

Finnair A350 XWB

Finnair has announced it will boost capacity on its UK-Russia routes.

From April 10, Finnair will double its flights between Helsinki and Moscow, allowing easier connection with flights arriving from the UK.

The new services will be operated by Embraer 190 aircraft, with Finnair flying 14 weekly flights between the Russian capital and Helsinki and offering up to four daily flights in co-operation with Aeroflot Russian Airlines.

Then from April 23 the airline will add six weekly flights to its Helsinki-St Petersburg route, operated by ATR aircraft and bringing the total frequency on the route to 20 flights per week.

Finnair recently announced plans to increase capacity between Edinburgh and Helsinki to five flights per week this summer, and between Dublin and Helsinki to nine flights per week from March.
