Today, Finnair, Atlantic Joint Business (AJB) and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) launched the inaugural flight with direct flights from DFW to Helsinki, Finland (HEL). The route will be operated four times a week providing more flight options and convenient connections. The new hub-to-hub service between DFW and HEL will help to link Finnair’s network throughout Scandinavia and alliance partner American Airlines’ extensive network from DFW.
“As international travel demand picks up, Finnair is pleased to provide customers with our Dallas Fort Worth to Helsinki route launch,” said Caroline Borawski, General Manager, North America at Finnair. “The added access to Europe, Scandinavia, Baltics and beyond is meeting both essential and aspirational travel needs and shows the important investment and commitment Finnair is making in North America.”
“We are thrilled about this new service. It strengthens DFW Airport’s European route options for our customers and further solidifies our commitment to continued growth on the international stage,” said John Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Global Strategy and Development, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
“Partnerships mean more routes and more service for our customers around the world,” said Anmol Bhargava, American’s vice president of alliances. “American welcomes our Atlantic Joint Business and oneworld partner, Finnair, to Dallas Fort Worth as their new DFW-Helsinki flight provides more options for customers to reach Finland and the Nordic region, Baltics, and Russia.”
In addition to the new flights through DFW, Finnair operates direct flights to Helsinki from Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. During the winter season, Finnair is also flying to Stockholm, Sweden, from Los Angeles, New York and Miami.
Finnair’s extensive European network from Helsinki delivers smooth connections to more than 70 European cities, including double daily flights to cities like Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Vienna, Zürich, Gdansk and Milan, and even more daily frequencies to Paris, London, Berlin, Warsaw, Brussels, Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as the Scandinavian and Baltic cities.
To support the ramp up of Finnair’s traffic and ensure smooth and fast transfers at HEL, the airport opened new arrival and departure halls in December 2021 and will be opening new security control and check-in areas in May 2022.
