Finnair is expanding its short-haul European network for summer 2023 with new routes to Norway and Italy, as well as relaunching services to Slovenia’s capital city.
The carrier will introduce flights from its Helsinki base to Bodo in Norway, as well as Milan Linate from the start of the summer schedule in late March.
Finnair will also relaunch services to Ljubljana this summer, as well as adding more flights to cities such as Berlin, Copenhagen, Vilnius and Riga, as part of a short-haul schedule that will offer more than 50 destinations in Europe.
The airline will operate three flights per week to Bodo for the first time, while its new Milan Linate services will complement its existing route to Milan Malpensa.
Ole Orver, Finnair’s chief commercial officer, said: “Travel has recovered at a good pace so we are increasing flights to popular destinations across Europe for leisure and business travellers.
“We also rescheduled a number of services - both long and short-haul - to ensure seamless connectivity for our flights to Japan to meet the increase in demand from Asia.”
Finnair has been busy rebuilding its long-haul network in recent months, although it has been adversely affected by not being able to fly through Russian airspace on some of its routes to Asia.
