Finnair flies one of Europe’s newest fleets with an average aircraft age of 7,2 years. Operating with new aircraft cuts back on fuel consumption and emissions by 20 to 30 percent. In many cases, flights from Europe to Asia via Helsinki also create fewer emissions than nonstop flights.
Finnair flies the shortest routes between Europe and Asia via Helsinki, reducing kilometres in the air as well as fuel consumption. Passengers and cargo are carried on the same flights. Between 60 and 80 per cent of Finnair’s landings in Finland are continuous descent approach landings that create fewer emissions. Unnecessary circling in the air or taxiway is avoided.
