Finnair, the short northern route between Europe and Asia

Finnair is one of the most experienced airlines in the world. During the last years, Finnair has developed an important network connecting Europe and 19 major Asian cities. Helsinki is on the geographically shortest route between Europe and Asia. Using the shorter one to Asia means less CO² emissions and less fuel consumption.

Flying via Helsinki means that you are flying the shorter and faster route between Asia and Europe. When flying via Helsinki, you will enjoy the compact and uncrowded Helsinki Airport, where all the gates and services are located under one roof, in one terminal building. Designed especially for transferring between Asian and European flights, it is regularly rated as one of the most efficient airports. Flying via Helsinki means you’ll spend less time waiting for flights and more time at your destination. Finnair connects over 60 cities in Europe to 19 Asian destinations: Bangkok, Beijing, Chongqing, Delhi, Fukuoka, Goa, Guangzhou, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Krabi, Nagoya, Nanjing, Osaka, Phuket, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo and Xi’an.
