Finnair has launched another of its periodic sales on Economy and Business Class tickets to India and Asia.

You can see full details here.

Some of the Business Class deals look very attractive.  Delhi is just £1,299 return, Bangkok is £1,589 and there are a few Chinese destinations from £1,299.

Economy tickets start from £449 to Chongqing.


You need to book by April 18th, apart from Bangkok.  There are other destinations included apart from those highlighted on the website, so if you are heading anywhere in Asia it is worth pricing them up.

Remember that Finnair is a oneworld alliance member like BA, so your flights will earn Avios and BA tier points.

You can depart from either Manchester or London.  Because of the routing over the pole, flight times to most parts of Asia will not be substantially worse than flying direct on BA.

Here are the full terms and conditions for the Business Class fares:

Sales period:
, until 9 April 2013;
all other destinations
, until 18 April 2013.

Travel period:
, 13 May–30 September 2013 (departures only on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays);
, 2 April–19 June 2013;
 and Delhi, 2 April–30 June 2013;
, 2 April–31 May 2013;
, 2 April–15 June 2013;
, 14 June–18 July 2013.

    Helsinki is lovely for a daytrip. I was able to pop into the city from the airport (~30mins on the bus I remember) for lunch and a bit of sightseeing during a ~6h wait between connections. Great wine bar at HEL too.

    You can also codeshare onto BA metal for the shorthaul trip to HEL if that’s your thing.
