There's a very limited amount of viable destinations from HEL for DY. Perhaps FLL would be a good guess with AY turning MIA back to a seasonal route. I can't see HEL-BKK happening as the detour around Russia is greater than from ARN or CPH and especially now after AY is going 16x weekly this winter and 10x next summer season.

Also it's worth pointing out the fact that Scandinavian countries are vastly more popular destinations for Americans.

Does someone know how many Dreamliners is DY adding in 2018? Is the pace slowing down?

I think we will see DY's 787s in HEL in 2021 at the latest as Norwegian aims to double its flights from HEL within next 4 years (read more: hs.fi 10/27/2016, in Finnish). FLL would be good as well as LAX, and maybe BOS, OAK, SEA, ORD, YYZ, YVR, EWR or JFK. In the future, if DY gets rights to fly over Russia, maybe Tokyo, Bangkok or Phuket, Manila, Ulaanbaatar, Singapore, Mumbai etc.

I tried to find information about Norwegian's future aircraft deliveries but I couldn't.

Well it's nice to be enthusiastic but if you want to be realistic you can cross out most of the ones you listed. Majority of those destinations probably wouldn't work even for AY with feed on both ends.

DY has long voiced their hopes of flying to Asia from CPH, ARN and OSL if the governments of the respective countries can renegotiate the Siberian corridor agreement. Finland surely has no interest in trying to add any significant changes to their own agreement with Russia if it would threaten the state-owned AY. There are many completely unserved destinations between Scandinavia and Asia unlike the situation at HEL.

Also given the recent talk around DY let's hope the airline is still around in its present form in 2021. ;)

From DY's Q2 presentation it seems that the airline will have 21 Dreamliners by this year's end and 32 by the end of 2018.

Yeah, I was enthusiastic and would actually cross out many of them. Maybe I would leave FLL, LAX and maybe JFK or EWR. However, Björn Kjøs said flights from Helsinki to Asia would also be a good option for Norwegian but let's see. He also said that narrow-body aircraft (Boeing 737 MAX, A321LR?) would be good on some long-haul routes from Helsinki (I don't know if he meant India). But US is the most likely destination for DY from HEL. Probably we won't see any Asian flights from HEL operated by DY (except Middle East).

This isn't an increase as it's daily over winter too.

It was daily over the summer too, barring the usual UK-Scandinavia reductions over the peak summer (late July-Late Aug) where it went Down to 5 weekly. It does the same this summer too.

No, and that's why it has been reduced from daily (3x/4x weekly from OSL/CPH alternating) to 4x weekly in totalt (1x OSL. 1x ARN and 2x CPH)

Hopefully that will materialize, even though that's indeed a strange one. However, 3x weekly service might be too much, even Kunming-Chengdu-Helsinki will be less: 2x weekly. Interesting that Helsinki and Finland are suddenly so attractive :)

It's most likely just a combination of Finavia's efforts to court Chinese airlines and the fact that now there are many new airlines in China willing to fly abroad. It's not surprising that in the beginning they will start with shorter sectors like we've seen with Moscow and St Petersburg and most recently with Lucky Air at HEL before they move on to other destinations in Europe. Also local government subsidies play a role with these 'unexpected' routes being applied.

Personally I would much rather see CA or MU and the like but it's quite unlikely at the moment. In ten years the situation will look a lot different.

It still baffles me that no Chinese carrier flies to OSL. Inevitable to happen soon.

New code-share routes for AY and BA:
Finnair and British Airways are extending their current partnership with several new code-shares flights within Europe.

British Airways will place its codes on several of Finnair’s European destinations including the new non-stop flights from London Gatwick to Kittilä and Ivalo, which will begin operating for the winter season on December 12 and 14 respectively. Finnair will place its codes on British Airways flights between London Heathrow and Tallinn, Copenhagen and Gothenburg. The new code-shares aim to increase the connectivity for both carriers through their respective Helsinki and London airport hubs.

“The extension of our code-share agreement with British Airways is great news for our customers as it will give them more opportunities and flexibility to choose from when booking their travel,” says Philip Lewin, Head of Partnerships and Alliances at Finnair.

“We are delighted to offer our customers yet more choices of destinations between Japan and Europe with Finnair as part of our joint partnership with JAL and Iberia, and additionally the opportunity to fly direct to Lapland from London Gatwick this winter,” says Rishi Kapoor, Head of Alliances at British Airways.

I would like to see any Chinese airlines among the "big 4" (CA, CZ, MU, HU) as well as Cathay Pacific or Taiwanese airline. I think we won't see CA in HEL before the new Beijing Daxing Airport is opened. I'm not sure about others.

Main unserved long-haul routes from OSL are (PAX):

    OSL-SIN (18,112)
    OSL-IAD (14,400)
    OSL-DEL (13,747)
    OSL-HKG (13,456)
    OSL-SFO (11,794)
    OSL-MNL (11,564)
    (No OSL-ORD?!)

    Source

According to anna.aero, the annual market between Norway and China is 83,000 passengers (42,000 passengers between Norway and Beijing, 26,000 passengers between Norway and Shanghai). I don't know which year the figures are from. Even though, list of unserved routes on Avinor's website does not show any Chinese city in the top 6 unserved LH routes. But I believe OSL will get a connection to China pretty soon, maybe CA on OSL-PEK or MU on OSL-PVG.

Yeah, that's going to happen. I wonder if AY is going to operate to EDI all year-round soon. It's almost year-round at the moment as flies direct from Helsinki to Edinburgh from 30 March 2017 to 6 January 2018 and from 25 March to 27 October 2018.

Yes, Lucky Air is also going to fly to HEL with A330. Lucky Air plans to order A350s or B787s so the aircraft may be switched to A350 or B787 in the future. In addition, Tibet Airlines has applied to operate Jinan-Helsinki service which would also be a thrice weekly A330 service :D

Well let's see if Lucky will still be flying to HEL at the end of May. I have my doubts whether they will even start the route. Can't really see Lucky nor Tibet Airlines working unless they partner with AY. Perfectly happy if I'm wrong though.

If my memory serves me correctly Beijing Capital Airlines flew to CPH in 2015 and originally planned to start HEL in the same year. So with only three years in between first announcement and actual flights, they won't beat QR's record of five years. ;)

Beijing Capital obviously is the designated Chinese carrier on Beijing-Copenhagen and Beijing-Helsinki. However, they have to fly it within 2 years, if not they loose their route authority from the Chinese government. And this may also affect their possibility to be awarded other routes between China and Europe. So not surprising these two routes are launched next year

Finnair's profits rise on strong Asian demand

Reuters: Finnair has reported better than expected quarterly profits, helped by deploying newer, more efficient aircraft and good demand on its Asian routes, its main target market.

Its third-quarter core operating profit was up 80 percent at 119 million euros, ahead of the average of analysts' forecasts of 99 million euros, according to a Reuters poll.

Good result from AY, the best Q3 in the company's history and the 12th consecutive quarterly improvement. You can say they have (almost) all the eggs in one basket = North East Asia but that's where their strength is.

^Quote from the link:

“We are pleased to work with Finnair, an internationally respected name in international air travel, to bring more high-quality travel options to our international-minded customers,” says Mr. Feng Sun , General Manager of JD Travel. “We believe that this partnership will help Finnair connect with our more than a quarter of a billion consumers, opening up a significant new market.”


But I wonder how many of them hold a valid passport? ;)

What?! According to marketwatch.com, Finnair is in finacial problems, as well as Turkish Airlines.

Also, the website shows Finnair is a candidate for bankruptcy.

This cannot be true :lol:

Transportstyrelsen will announce a decision tomorrow. A Finnish public owned energy company called Herrfors Ab in Jakobstad have extended their ownership in NextJet
and the private owned industrial company Solving Ab in Pedersöre have also became part owners of NextJet.

All in all about 40 million SEK have been put into NextJet but those money will likely not last very long according to a Swedish "aviation expert" named Arne Karyd.
He says that NJ would have needed about 111 million SEK to be back at zero at the start if the year.

Qatar Airways now operates to HEL with Airbus A330-300.

Today's flight QR301:
Aircraft: Airbus A330-302
Registration: A7-AEE
Seats: 305 | J30 / Y275


Also, Finnair has deployed one of the A350s (OH-LWG) to Helsinki-Málaga route this morning. Will Finnair be flying to Málaga with A350 for the whole winter season or is this just an exception?

Höstlov in Sweden this week and a lot of added capacity out of ARN and GOT. Could it be the same for HEL?
