Juneyao Air will open a direct route from Shanghai Pudong Airport to Helsinki Airport. Daily flights will be available on June-July 2019 and operated with a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
New direct connections are expected to increase the number of Chinese tourists and also offer new tourism opportunities from Finland to China and Asia.
According to Finavia Director, Joni Sundelin, more than 550,000 passengers travelled between China and Finland in 2018.
“Chinese destinations were the most popular long-distance destinations after Japan. Juneyao Air is a great addition to Helsinki Airport and offers a comprehensive route network in China,” Mr. Sundelin says.
Juneyao Airlines is a leading Chinese airline based in Shanghai, China. It operates more than 50 destinations in both domestic and international services.
