Finnair to add winter frequencies to Bangkok next winter
Finnair says it will supplement its double-daily winter service to Bangkok with three additional frequencies per week from December 30 this year to March 27, 2015.
The extra flights bring the number of the Finnish airline’s peak-season weekly Bangkok services to 17, the most frequencies of any European carrier.
The additional flights are scheduled to depart on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings. The airline stresses that the new evening frequencies, operated with Airbus A340, offer good connections with other cities in Finland and Scandinavia as well as France and Germany.
“Thailand has long been a popular destination for Finns and other Northern Europeans, and adding capacity will help us meet this enduring – and growing – demand,” Finnair CEO Pekka Vauramo commented. “As the European airline with most weekly frequencies to Bangkok and several other Asian destinations, we are on track to double our revenue from Asian traffic between 2010 and 2020.”
Finnair offers up to 28 frequencies per week to three cities in Japan and 28 to five cities in China and other Asian destinations include Delhi, Hanoi, Seoul and Singapore.
