Finnair New Routes 2018 and Frequency Increases

Finnair's new routes and frequencies in 2018 strongly reflect our Asia growth strategy and Finnair Cargo's growing influence in Asia. New 2018 destinations include a new year-round flight to Nanjing beginning May 13th 2018, and increased capacity for Tokyo and Bangkok. 

Finnair's new destinations in 2018 and route increases for summer 2018 (Finnair press release) mean increased capacity of 14% on the record-breaking year in 2017.

But if you're a Cargo customer then you don't need to read about every single new beach destination for passengers or increased capacity for some hotspot in the sun. That's why we've collected together all the key changes that will impact Finnair Cargo customers, especially. 

Below you can also find Finnair Cargo's summer timetables to and from Helsinki.
