Finnair launches flights to connect Singapore with Helsinki route

Published on : Wednesday, October 19, 2016

finnairNow the shortest route from Europe to Asia has arrived with the launch of Finnair flights. The government backed airline of Finland will make its inaugural flight between Singapore and Helsinki Monday in a time of just 11 hours and 30 minutes.


The new route uses its new fleet of Airbus A350 XWBs, a widebody aircraft that claims to use 25-percent less fuel compared to its aluminum long-range competitors, like Boeing’s B777. The aircraft, which first entered the market last year, offers passengers 18-inch wide seats as the standard in economy.


Finnair is the first European airline to fly the aircraft between Europe and Asia.


Earlier this year, it launched “Stopover Helsinki” which allows visitors to stay, as a layover, for anywhere between five hours to up to five days.


Finnair will have a total of 19 Airbus A350s in operation, making it the largest investment in the airline’s history. The company aims to double its Asian traffic by 2020, from its 2010 baseline.
