Finnair strengthens its presence in China with new destination
14th September 2017 - 10:09am
Finnair is opening a new year-round route to Nanjing, China.
Nanjing is one of the four ancient capitals of China, and a vibrant center for culture and economy. With a population of over eight million people, Nanjing is an important commercial hub and leisure destination with growing passenger and cargo demand.
Offering convenient transfers to Finnair’s network of over 100 destinations via its hub, Helsinki Airport, the new route between Helsinki and Nanjing will be operated three times per week during the summer season and two times per week during the winter season.
The opening of the Nanjing route will increase Finnair’s growing footprint in Northeast Asia, with the Finnish carrier flying to seven destinations in Greater China during the 2018 summer season. Altogether, Finnair will fly 38 weekly flights to Greater China, flying daily flights to both Beijing and Shanghai, four weekly flights to both Chongqing and Guangzhou, three weekly flights to both Nanjing and Xi’an as well as 10 weekly flights to Hong Kong.
The inaugural flight to Nanjing will take place on May 13, 2018 and the new route will be operated with an Airbus A330 aircraft.
