FINNAIR will be the only airline offering a daily service between Singapore and Northern Europe when it launches its Helsinki-Singapore flight on May 30.
"In addition to Singapore, we expect to attract passengers, particularly from Australia," said Petteri Kostermaa, head of Finnair's Singapore sales unit.
For passengers from Asia, the route will offer connections via Finnair's network of 50 European destinations. Passengers to Singapore will be able to fly to Australia and South-east Asia via Finnair's partner airlines.
The route will be serviced by Airbus A340 aircraft. Singapore will be the carrier’s 10th scheduled flight destination in Asia.
