Finnair launches New Flights to Delhi

The launch of flights to the Indian capital Delhi is the highlight of Finnair's winter timetable that came into force yesterday, Sunday October 29. The number of flights to Tokyo will also double at the beginning of December to four a week, while the 30th anniversary of flights from Helsinki to Bangkok – Finnair’s first Asian destination – is celebrated on Thursday 2 November. On its European network, Finnair will be adding new daily flights from Paris, Munich, Copenhagen and Vilnius, and increasing frequencies on St Petersburg, Budapest and Warsaw routes.
The inaugural flight to Delhi is today, Monday 30 October. To start with, the flights will run three times a week using Boeing MD-11 wide-bodied aircraft, but next spring the frequencies will be boosted to five a week.
The flight time between Helsinki and Delhi is just six hours and 30 minutes, with outward departures on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and return flights on the following days.
