This is great news if this will materialize!

Yes, it will most certainly come true just like the examples of Lucky Air and Beijing Capital Airlines have shown! And you could probably add Tibet Airlines to that list as well.

The route makes zero sense in the current situation and especially with AY already on the route. It would not surprise me if that was simply an error in translation.

Haha, very funny. I think China Southern is more likely than those other Chinese carriers as CZ would probably get the permission to operate to Finland easier than Lucky Air, Beijing Capital Airlines or Tibet Airlines as CZ already flies to Europe and is much bigger airline with probably better ties with CAAC. I wouldn't say "the route makes zero sense" either if you look at what CZ is doing at CAN, not to mention that Guangzhou metropolitan area is one of the largest in Asia by population. As Finland is getting more and more popular, especially among the Chinese, I believe China Southern will come to HEL sooner or later, given also their huge growth plan.

It’s not about permission or no permission. Both Lucky Air and Beijing Capital Airlines were given the green light from the CAAC but still nothing came out of those routes. The point-to-point market is simply too limited for two carriers and with no feed for CZ as long as they don’t join Oneworld it’s just more empty talk yet again.

Finnair continued to grow in September. Unfortunately, cancellations due to the storms and typhoons in Asia affected the passenger numbers (except for NGO that saw 14 weekly flights instead of 7 flights for a week).


Finnair Traffic Performance in September 2018

In September, Finnair carried 1,159,400 passengers, 7.8% more than in the corresponding period of 2017. The number of passengers grew in Asian traffic 5.5%, in European traffic 10.0% and in domestic 3.1%, while it decreased in North American traffic by -1.0%.

Finnair's overall capacity measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK) increased in September by 13.2% year-on-year. Finnair's traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPKs) grew by 7.2%. The high ASK growth rate was reflected in the Passenger Load Factor (PLF), which decreased year-on-year by -4.6% points to 80.8%.

Don't know the schedule, exact frequencies and until when yet, but Finnair is expanding their wetlease with Widerøe, which will operate AY1437 HEL-TXL and AY1251 HEL-BUD, with their E190-E2 from Dec 15th. This comes in addition to HEL-BGO daily and their 1x weekly TOS-HEL

It now looks like this wetlease will last all the way until the end of March 2019 with Wideroe operating "some flights" to TXL and VIE.

https://www.finnair.com/int/gb/flightinfo

I guess it hasn't been mentioned here yet that one A330 (OH-LTS) from AY has been stuck at ORD for the last two weeks due to some kind of damage to the rear of the plane (probably from a high loader?). As a result AY has been cancelling flights every day this month. Must be quite some damage for the repair work to take this long, AY is being very tight-lipped.

A week ago this was published on the front page of the Finnair website. The article mentioned what happened and which flights were cancelled. I don't see the article now and unfortunately I have forgotten the details.

The incident occurred 25th of September so the damage must be bad or they don't have parts for the repair. Either way it's going to be expensive for some one...

Malaga: From 3 to 7 weekly
Barcelona: From 4 to 7 weekly
Alicante: From 4 to 5 weekly

Like mentioned earlier, BCN will be added 3 x weekly by Ryanair on the same date. Together with Vueling the route will double to 13 weekly by DY/VY/FR...

Together with PRG/BCN/MAN, the new DUB route will bring the total destinations by FR from GOT to 17!

Wow, this route was launched only three years ago.
It seems like GOT is currently on fire. I have never seen so much expansion and growth announced for the same period. 2019 will be a great year for Gothenburg!

I wouldn't be too worried, at least the hard product looks pretty good, not worse than AY's oldish A333 cabins. After all they didn't get HiFly A330.

Will AY ever consider introducing premium economy? The A350 would be a nice PE investment considering they will be around for the next 15-20 years.

They did consider PE, instead of a new travel class their widebodies now have around 40 Economy Comfort seats each. That means a Y seat with 3-5 inches extra legroom, noise cancelling head phones, a modest amenity kit, free WiFi for one hour, priority boarding and exit. Otherwise an ordinary Y class service, including Y meals and drinks.

It was actually pretty good ! Even thought the seats were not fully flat bed, it didn't bother me at all. Slept like a baby through most of the flight.

There is Wi-Fi, but it was pretty expensive. Not standard AY offering but Air Italy:s own terms. Soft product was standard AY, the Italian crew was still learning the AY service concept (this being their second flight).

Thanks for the info! I didn't realize the J seats are not fully flat, sounds not a problem. They have cheap flights MXP-BKK, would be cool to try them just for fun.

Some interesting movements up north on the Faroe Islands as of recent days, with the Azerbaijan and Kosovo football teams visiting the islands. Azerbaijan left their own airline's A320 behind in Copenhagen, while the Kosovo flew all the way to Vagar with Trade Air, with just a fuel stop in CPH:

Finnair will fly to Hong Kong 11x weekly instead of 10 weekly flights, as of 3 Nov 2018. From 10 Dec 2018, there will be 12 weekly flights to HKG (announced already in January 2018).

Good to know, thanks. KLM is my airline of choice in Europe, and planning a work trip to Umeå soon it surprised me that a growing university town hadn’t managed to attract a feeder to a non-Nordic hub like AMS. Hopefully VXO will mature and KLM will consider other cities.

It's a bit weird actually that UME didn't have a single links to Germany, considering how many Germans are here in Umeå. I'm an international student at the university and 80% of the people I've met were Germans. Also, connecting via ARN is super expensive and for my last trip to London, LHR-ARN-UME almost cost twice than LHR-ARN! Even DY charge more than SK for my travel date.

I ended up staying in my friend's place in Uppsala for 3 days waiting for SJ's high-speed sista minuten (did I spell it right? lol) ticket. I ended up in the pet-friendly compartment on the nattåg, with a Swedish hillbilly couple who let out the most foul fart ever about 15 minutes before Hudiksvall that woke me up from my sleep. I'm still a bit traumatized by that.... :yuck: :yuck:

Norwegian will end flights between SFT and ARN in January 2019, citing the new aviation tax and poor profitability.

On 1 April 2019, Gothenburg will get its fifth new route starting the same week!
This time up, it’s Laudamotion that will serve Stuttgart twice weekly, Mondays and Fridays!

The main targets are business travelers in the car industry, but also inbound German tourists. The market has grown from 2,000 passengers in 2010 to 16,000 last year!

STR will be the sixth German city served from GOT!

Wow, thats seems like a expensive allocation of a A330!

It looks like BA will drop HEL from 2x daily to just 1x daily in S19. Really quite unfortunate and not least for connections, but at least AY in the same alliance salvages a bit.

If you have a choice of A320 with a £3 coffee vs a A359 with a free coffee it is not really surprising...

AY and BA have joint venture anyway. And BA and AY have flown the route wingtip to wingtip. So there is really no reason to choose BA over AY on the route.

Hopefully, AY or D8 will increase flights to fill the gap. It's useless to think that a new airline would step in...

Dropping 1 daily flight will cause a gap? I doubt that Norwegian will rush to add another LGW rotation, and I doubt AY has a slot for another LHR rotation.

AY does an additional flight on Sundays, departing HEL at 1125am. (Do they still do that?) Could they have any chance to get slots at least for two or three more days a week for this flight?

Qatar Airways seems to deploy a wide-body aircraft also to the 2nd flight to HEL (QR308)!

- As of 10 Dec 2018, A350-900 will be flying to HEL (in addition to A330)
- eff 14 Jan 2019, QR will be flying to HEL 2x daily with Airbus A330 (2nd daily flight with A330-200)

No changes to S19 schedule yet, but I expect to see 2x daily wide-body operations also during the summer season.
