Finnair will add a new daily frequency year-round on both its routes to Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia as of March 31, 2019. The flights will be flown with an Embraer 190 aircraft. The new additions will bring the total amount of weekly flights up to 27 on the St. Petersburg route and up to 28 on the Moscow route.
“We are happy to further improve our connections to Moscow and St. Petersburg, in response to the increased customer demand,” says Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “Both are key markets for Finnair, and next year we will also celebrate our St. Petersburg route’s 55th anniversary.”
The new frequencies will support good connections from Moscow and St. Petersburg to Finnair’s North American flights and will also offer great connectivity to Finnair’s wide network in Asia and Europe.
