Finnair to Launch Direct Dublin – Helsinki Flights

Commencing next March, Finnair will operate a direct Dublin – Helsinki service six days per week with a 100-seater Embraer 190 aircraft. The airline, which is part of the Oneworld alliance, withdrew its previous Dublin – Helsinki service in 2005.

“We are delighted to welcome Finnair back to Dublin Airport,” said Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport Managing Director. “The new Helsinki service will provide greater choice and convenience for customers travelling between Ireland and Finland and will also offer enhanced connectivity between Dublin Airport and key destinations in Asia via Finnair’s hub in Helsinki.”

The growing demand for connectivity to and from Asia was a key factor in the decision to launch the service, according to Finnair. “With this new destination we are responding to growing demand, particularly from Asia, so timetables for each of these new routes are tailored for the best possible connection to Finnair’s Asian flights,” said Petri Vuori, Finnair’s Vice President – Global Sales. “At the same time, of course, our Finnish and Baltic Rim passengers will also be able to enjoy what Dublin and Ireland have to offer.”

The Dublin – Helsinki service will be operated on behalf of Finnair by Flybe Finland, with flights daily except Tuesdays. The service will operate from 30th March until late October.
