Finnish airline Finnair has announced new frequencies to some of its popular destinations for the 2018–2019 winter season.

Finnair’s new frequencies will include two additional weekly flights to Tokyo between 28 October and 5 December, for a total of nine weekly flights to the Japanese capital. In addition, a code-share arrangement with Japan Airlines means Finnair will offer 16 weekly flights in all to Tokyo. A new weekly frequency to Nagoya in Japan will also go take off in that time period.

Closer to home, Finnair is adding a new frequency to Portugal’s capital Lisbon for the whole winter season. And in Spain, the Finnish airline will offer two new weekly flights to Alicante for the winter season, and one additional frequency to Malaga next December and January.

Meanwhile, two additional weekly frequencies to Geneva in Switzerland should thrill ski enthusiasts, who will have 13 weekly flights to choose from between January and March.

Winter is still some time in the distance, however, so in the meantime Finnair is rolling out additional flights for the summer, including new direct flights between the capital cities Helsinki and Minsk, Belarus, come June. Earlier still, a co-operation with Braathens Regional Airlines will connect Malmö in Sweden with Helsinki as of 16 March.

Flight traffic is increasingly moving in the other direction as well, as Finland is fast becoming a new go-to destination in Northern Europe that saw it break plenty of tourism records in 2017.
