Report: Finnair A350 Business Class to AsiaNigel Howarth
Finnair flies to over 20 destinations in Asia, including seven in China (plus Hong Kong) and five in Japan. This once-small airline now has a fleet of 19 widebody Airbus A330 and A350 aircraft, most of which are employed on routes to Asia. Using its geographical advantage, Finnair is marketing its services as the fastest routes to Asia, which for many origin points in Western Europe is certainly the case. With Helsinki Airport being a very compact, single-terminal location, with slick connections and virtually no delays, it's a smooth journey that is a world apart from the hustle and bustle of say Frankfurt, Heathrow or Paris.
Typical of many flights connecting to Asia, an A320 awaits its passengers at Manchester before flying to Helsinki.
