Aug 11, 2016: Finnair is to offer five A350 flights per week on its London Heathrow-Helsinki route from October.
Currently Finnair operates the A350 on flights AY831 and the return AY832 on Monday, Friday and Sunday. The new additional A350 XWB services for Wednesdays and Thursdays (for flights AY831 and AY832) will be added from October 5.
The next-generation aircraft replaces the A320 on the two hours 55 minute route, allowing Finnair to meet the increased demand for capacity and cargo on this busy route.
“We are delighted to offer our cargo customers additional regular capacity to/from London Heathrow with the ultra-modern Airbus A350XWB”, says Fredrik Wildtgrube, Finnair Cargo’s Head of Global Sales.
Finnair Cargo also offers shared freighter service with IAG Cargo between Helsinki and London on Saturdays.
