In response to the growing demand for travel to Thailand, Finnair is ramping up its connectivity between Helsinki and Bangkok this winter.

The award-winning Nordic airline is now set to expand its winter flights from 11 per week to a newly enhanced double daily service. This initiative will offer travelers more choices and flexibility when planning their journeys to Asia.

A Boost in Services for Bangkok

Starting from October 29th, Finnair will elevate its service by offering two flights daily between Helsinki and Bangkok for the winter season.

Departing Helsinki at 1:50pm and 4:30pm, passengers will have the convenience of arriving in Thailand at 6:20am and 9:05am the following morning.

On the return leg, flights from Bangkok will depart at 8:00am and 10:40am, reaching Finnair’s home hub in Helsinki at 3:30pm and 6:10pm that afternoon.

For travelers seeking an Asian adventure, Finnair is offering attractive return fares from London starting at £575 in Economy Class, £1,134 in Premium Economy, and £2,081 in Business Class.

These fares, inclusive of all taxes and charges, provide excellent value for the superior travel experience that Finnair consistently delivers.

Passengers bound for Bangkok will also have the opportunity to indulge in the innovative features of Finnair’s Airbus A350 aircraft.

Boasting brand new long-haul cabins, including industry-leading Air Lounge Business Class seats, a refreshed Premium Economy, and an updated Economy cabin, the A350 ensures a comfortable and modern journey.

Long-haul Destinations

With this expansion, Finnair will serve 16 long-haul destinations from its Helsinki hub during the winter season. Prominent cities such as Singapore, Seoul, and Tokyo are among the offerings.

Finnair’s commitment to ensuring seamless travel experiences extends to its efficient connections from top UK airports – London Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh, and Dublin.

Travelers will appreciate smooth transfers with as little as 35 minutes between flights, facilitated by all operations taking place in the same terminal.

The Asian air travel market is currently popular for Europeans. The number of Europeans traveling to Asia by air increased by 9.6% every month since February 2022.

This is due to a number of factors, including the growing affluence of Europeans, the increasing availability of flights to Asia, and the diverse and exciting destinations that Asia has to offer.

Thailand, known for its beautiful beaches, delicious food, and friendly people has remained a popular choice for European tourists.
