Finnair has made a bid to pick up traffic from Ireland to the Far East introducing a six times weekly service between Dublin and Helsinki. Flight time is three hours with a two-class Embraer 190.
The airline competes with Heathrow and the Gulf airports for connecting traffic pointing out that Helsinki is far less congested and a very congenial changing point. For most destinations the total travel time is shorter.
• Dublin Beijing Just over 14 hours
• Dublin Tokyo 15 hours
• Dublin Hong Kong 13 hours and 25 minutes
• Dublin Bangkok 15 hours and 25 minutes
Fares are said to be “very competitive”.
Checked-in baggage is included in all classes and Economy passengers can enjoy the airline’s Sky Bistro service which offers a wide selection of seasonal, high-quality food and beverage options combining the best of both Europe and Asia.
Fredrik Charpentier, Finnair Sales Director, United Kingdom and Ireland, said: “Helsinki is a perfect destination to spend a long weekend or to visit for a business meeting. We are delighted to be linking with Dublin and looking forward to welcoming passengers on board our direct services while also offering the fastest and most convenient connections through to Asia via our award winning hub in Finland." www.finair.com
