Travelers booking airline tickets from Finland and other European cities have now multiple flight options for their Asia travel. Finland’s national flag carrier Finnair has expanded its Asia operations with the launch of new flights to Hanoi and Xi’an.
Finnair recently announced it will start operating thrice weekly flights to the northern Chinese city of Xi’an and Vietnamese capital of Hanoi throughout the summer season. The flights would operate until October 27, 2013.
Finnair had last year launched flights services to Singapore and Chongqing. The airline is currently operating direct flights to 13 Asian cities, including five destinations in China. The airline said that the launch of flights to Hanoi would be the airline’s first scheduled service to Vietnam.
The airline in a statement said that it would be deploying an Airbus A330-300 aircraft to operate flights on both Hanoi and Xi’an routes. The flights to Hanoi would be operated every Monday, Thursday and Saturday, while the Xi’an service would be operated every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
