Finnair now flying the A350 daily to Helsinki
I flew Finnair’s impressive new A350 business class to Helsinki last year – my review is here. You can’t go wrong – you get a fully flat bed on a brand new aircraft with impressive 1-2-1 seating.
For cargo purposes, Finnair has been scheduling A350’s into Heathrow on a regular basis.
From 27th March, there will be an A350 flying to Helsinki every day. Finnair has an impressive network of routes to Asia and, as long as the connections make sense, you could now fly the entire trip from London on an A350.
Remember that, as a oneworld partner, you earn Avios and BA tier points on Finnair. You can also redeem Avios for this flight.
