Finnair has announced an increase in flights to Moscow and St. Petersburg to build on its global network connectivity between Europe, Asia and the Americas.

As of 10 April, Finnair will double its flights between Helsinki and Moscow, with one more daily frequency between the two capital cities.

The flight from Helsinki to Moscow will be timed so passengers arriving from Asia, Europe and the Americas can transfer smoothly. Meanwhile, Finnair’s flight from Moscow to Helsinki will connect well with the airline’s flights to Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as with domestic flights in Finland.

Finnair will also boost the number of flights between Helsinki and St. Petersburg to up to 20 a week, as of 23 April. This allows for easy travel in the morning from St. Petersburg via Helsinki to the more than 70 European destinations the airline currently offers flights to, while a return to St. Petersburg from Europe in the evening will be optimised.

“These new flights support even better connections for the increased number of travelers between Russia and the US via Helsinki, and also offer our Russian customers full improved connectivity to our European and Asian services”, says Juha Järvinen, Finnair’s chief commercial officer.
