Finnair Unveils StopOver Finland Website

Finnair has announced a quicker and easier way for passengers to schedule their stopovers in Finland and discover two destinations during one trip. They can now book a stopover for their connecting flight to or from Helsinki on the recently launched stopover.finnair.com website.

Finnair customers will also have the possibility of selecting between a wide variety of activities and tours in Finland thanks to the StopOver Finland project, which is led by Visit Finland and is operated in co-operation with Primera Holidays.

With Finland’s capital just 30 minutes from Helsinki Airport, stopover customers will be able to enjoy its seaside atmosphere, design district, cozy cafés and unique restaurants and hotels.

Untouched nature is never far away in Finland, and customers will also be able to spend a day cruising through the Finnish archipelago or exploring one of Finland’s many national parks. Visitors searching for something truly unforgettable, such as jetting off to northern Finland and experiencing the mystical landscapes of Finnish Lapland, will also be able to organise longer trips thanks to the new initiative. The stopover packages, ranging from five-hour quick layovers to up to five-day tours, will be available through Primera Holidays’ website at finlandtours.fi during spring 2016.

“We are truly excited to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to StopOver and relax between flights and discover Finland at the same time,” said Anssi Partanen, Head of Travel Products, Finnair. “The StopOver Finland initiative is a perfect match for our expanding network.”

The StopOver Finland programme is one of the Team Finland growth programmes funded by Finland’s Ministry of Employment and the Economy. The project itself is led by Visit Finland together with partners such as Finnair and the tourism industry in Finland.
