Dublin to Helsinki

Finnair is to come back on the Dublin to Helsinki route from which it withdrew in 2005.  The airline will operate the service six days per week with a 100-seater Embraer 190 aircraft starting from 30 March 2015.

The growing demand for connectivity to and from Asia was a key factor in the decision to launch the service, according to Finnair.

“We are delighted to welcome Finnair back to Dublin Airport,” said Vincent Harrison, Managing Director, Dublin Airport.  “The new Helsinki service will provide greater choice and convenience for customers travelling between Ireland and Finland and will also offer enhanced connectivity between Dublin Airport and key destinations in Asia via Finnair’s hub in Helsinki,” Mr Harrison added.

The Dublin – Helsinki service will be operated on behalf of Finnair by Flybe Finland, with flights daily except Tuesdays.

“Passenger numbers at Dublin Airport are up 7% so far this year, as the airport welcomed almost 14.6 million passengers in eight months to the end of August,” Mr Harrison noted.   www.finnair.com
