Flybe Finland’s flights will have Finnair’s flight number starting May 1

Starting May 1 all routes operated by Flybe Finland at their own commercial risk will become a part of Finnair's contract flying arrangements, and the flights will carry a Finnair (AY) flight designator instead of Flybe’s (BE) code. The routes are between Helsinki and the following destinations:

  • Jyväskylä
  • Kajaani
  • Kemi-Tornio
  • Kokkola-Pietarsaari
  • Mariehamn
  • Norrköping
  • Tartu
  • Visby

Finnair sells tickets to these routes starting March 10, 2015. Tickets can also be purchased from Flybe Finland until April 30, 2015.

The change to Finnair’s flight numbers may cause some changes to the schedules of Flybe Finland flights that have already been booked and which depart on 1 May 2015 and onward. The aim is to continue to offer all passengers good connections to the destination that they have originally booked. Passengers will be informed of possible changes in flight schedules starting 10 March by email or text message. Information will also be available on Finnair’s and Flybe’s websites.
