Finnair resumes Dublin services from August 2

#Traveltradetogether

From 2 August, Finnair will resume services with 5 flights a week from Dublin to Helsinki, connecting Ireland to the Finnair network. Enjoy savings of up to 50% as flights from Dublin take off in August.

 

As the airline recovers from the pandemic, 25% of flights are to operate this summer, rising to a planned 70% for the winter season, with a mix of short and long-haul destinations, including the Far East and Asia.

 

Special Finnair fares include savings of 50%, with Business Class fares from €369 and Economy Class from €184 on return flights from Dublin to Helsinki (incl. taxes & charges). Check the local travel restrictions at destinations before booking and travelling.

 

Andrew Fish (Finnair GM UK, Ireland & Benelux) said: “Our five-times-a-week service from Dublin will reconnect Ireland with Helsinki and provide great onward connections to key Asian destinations, such as Bangkok, Hong Kong and Seoul… While customers may notice changes to our onboard service as we adapt to the ‘new normal’, our famous Nordic hospitality is guaranteed to stay the same”.

 

Finnair’s first flight into Dublin as travel restrictions are relaxed is due at 5:20pm as the AY1385, operating with an Embraer 90. The return flight to Helsinki will depart at 6:05pm as the AY1386, carrying the first customers from Ireland since March. Finnair’s schedule will be reviewed and updated monthly as travel restrictions as demand recovers, with Finnair expecting to offer a daily service to Helsinki from September.

 

As travel restrictions ease, Finnair has introduced new measures to ensure the highest possible hygiene standards. At airports, customers are recommended to wear a face mask and check-in online prior to arrival, with check-in desks equipped with protective plastic screens.

 

On board, the frequency of cleaning has been intensified, with a focus on high-touch surfaces. All cabin air passes through HEPA filters which filters more than 99.9% of particles.

 

A new boarding procedure sees customers seated at the back embark first with the reverse process for disembarking. Face masks are mandatory on board for all customers and cabin crew (except children under seven).

 

A streamlined onboard experience will minimise person-to-person contact during the flight, with one inflight dining meal tray, no hot towel and welcome drink and no duty free or ‘buy on board’ sales options.

 

All Finnair customers will be provided with a special Clean Kit with hand sanitiser, surface wipes, and an information leaflet packaged within an envelope that acts as a waste container. The kit has a special sustainable focus and features artwork by Finnish artist Reeta Ek. The surface wipes are sourced from sustainable Finnish forestry fibres while the hand sanitiser supplied by Kyrö distillery, better known for their award-winning world-famous gin.
