Finnair Announces New Kuala Lumpur Route

Finnair is to open another destination in Asia, when flights from Helsinki to Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur commence May 2007. The route will be operated three times a week via Bangkok.
“Demand for Asian destinations is growing in both directions and we have excellent connections from all over Europe. It is our goal to open one to two new Asian connections each year and add frequencies to our current network,” said Mika Perho, senior vice president at Finnair, in a statement unveiling the new destination.
Malaysia’s economy is one of the fastest growing in Southeast Asia and hundreds of European companies are already present in the country.
Sight-seeing and climate-wise, Malaysia is equivalent to neighbouring Thailand as a travel destination while Kuala Lumpur is a modern city with almost a million and a half inhabitants offering excellent shopping opportunities both in modern shopping centres and in smaller shopping alleys and streets.
The city also offers top-class hotel accommodation.
Finnair already flies to Bangkok, Guangzhou, Osaka, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong in Asia.
