About Finnair

Finnair in brief


Finnair is a network airline specialised in flying passengers and cargo between Asia and Europe. We fly to 19 destinations in Asia, seven in the Americas and over 100 destinations in Europe.

For people in Finland, we want to offer the best possible flight connections to the world, whereas to people travelling between Asian megacities and Europe, we want to offer the smoothest and fastest connections in the northern hemisphere via Helsinki. The geographical location of Helsinki gives us a competitive advantage: the shortest connections between Asia and Europe go over Helsinki. In addition, our Helsinki Airport hub is an exceptionally great point to connect for your next flight.
