Finnair opens a new year-round route to Hanover for summer 2019 and increases capacity to Dubai for winter 2018-2019
Continuing with its growth in the German market, Finnair will be launching a new route to Hanover, Germany, next summer. The new route will start on April 29 with five weekly frequencies and will become a daily and year-round frequency as of June 1, 2019. Hanover is one of Northern Germany’s largest cities and hosts several important fair and trade events throughout the calendar year. Hanover will be Finnair’s seventh destination in Germany. Finnair flies year-round to Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart.
“We are very excited to open a new route to Hanover and to continue our growth and expansion into Germany as it is a very important market for Finnair. We’ve also significantly increased our presence in the German market for the upcoming 2018 summer season by adding approximately 35 percent capacity compared to last summer,” says Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair.
Additional capacity is also being added for the 2019 summer season on some popular European routes. Finnair will add four weekly frequencies to Barcelona from the beginning of June until the end of the summer season. An additional frequency will be added to Reykjavik, making it a daily destination for the entire summer season. In addition, an additional daily frequency will be added to Warsaw on both Saturdays and Sundays.
Finnair is also adding capacity on its Helsinki-Dubai route for the upcoming winter 2018 season. One weekly frequency will be added which means Finnair will now fly seven weekly frequencies to Dubai. In addition, two of the weekly frequencies will now be operated with a A350, instead of a narrow-body aircraft.
“Flying some of the Dubai frequencies with the A350 during the winter season will also allow us to offer our Finnair Business Class product with full-flat seats on this popular leisure and business route,” adds Juha Järvinen.
The new flights are available for sale on Finnair.com as of today.
