Finnair – Finland’s flag carrier airline – has added Mumbai as a new destination in Summer 2022 and announced scheduled services between Mumbai and Helsinki starting July 2022.

The new launch makes Mumbai its second destination in India.

The airline will operate from Mumbai and Helsinki three times a week, i.e., on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, connecting the Indian travellers smoothly to and from Finnair’s vast network.  

Finnair connects customers to almost 70 destinations in Europe and five destinations in the US; Seattle, New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Los Angeles.

When flying to Europe or the US via Helsinki, customers can enjoy the compact and uncrowded Helsinki Airport, where all the gates and services are located under one roof, in one terminal building.

Helsinki Airport has recently gone through an extensive renewal, offering Asian travellers a smooth and easy transit to other destinations in Finnair’s network.

The airline will be operating the Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft for this route.

With strengthening economic ties between India and Europe, the launch of a new route signifies the growing importance of the region.

Our new services will enable both business & leisure travel from the region as global economies gradually recover from the impact of the COVID-19.”
