Finnair will operate scheduled flight between Helsinki and Dubai during the winter starting from 7 October 2011.

“Finnair has previously operated charter and leisure flights to Dubai but recently there has been increasing demand. We want to improve our service continuously and offer our customers smoother connections to Dubai,” says Ville Iho, Finnair’s Senior Vice President, Operations.

Finnish Tour operators still have a quota of seats on the scheduled flights.

The route will be flown three times per week in the winter season from 7 October 2011 until 23 March 2012. The route is operated with Boeing 757 aircraft. The flight from Dubai to Helsinki takes about 6 hours.
