Finnair continues to grow its Asian operations and adds Busan in South Korea as a new destination in summer 2020.
Finnair will be the first and only airline connecting Busan to Europe with a non-stop flight. In summer season 2020, Finnair will operate from Helsinki to Busan three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, starting on March 30th, 2020 (subject to regulatory approvals) with its modern Airbus A350 aircraft, with flights connecting smoothly to and from Finnair’s vast network of European destinations.
The addition of Busan into Finnair’s network connects over 100 European destinations with 20 destinations in Asia. Busan is South Korea’s second largest city with 3.5 million inhabitants. It is located on the south-eastern tip of the Korean Peninsula and is known for its beautiful scenery that combines mountains, rivers and the sea. Finnair specialises in connecting Europe and Asia via the short Northern route through Helsinki, Finland, with timetables designed to support smooth transfers and short travel times.
