New Flights – Finnair to propose 2 weekly flights to Istanbul
Finnair said on Friday it will launch a new route between Helsinki and Istanbul, Turkey in March 2009 with two weekly flights, aimed at business and leisure travellers.
‘It has been a long time since there has been a demand for flights to Istanbul for companies operating in Finland and Turkey’, Petteri Kostermaa, deputy director of traffic at Finnair, said in a statement.
The airline had previously operated flights to Istanbul in the early 1980s but had halted the service.
