Unless Google Translate is horribly wrong, SAS is hoping to find slots and move CPH-NRT route to HND in 2020, and ponders the possibility of opening ARN-NRT.

CPH-HND would be with A350 and ARN-NRT with A330.

https://finalcall.travel/no/planlegger- ... yo-haneda/

To me, HND sounds better than NRT for SAS. Lufthansa also moved it's Tokyo operations to HND and it is the main hub for ANA. ARN-Tokyo was expected to happen soon but is SAS going to fly from ARN to NRT instead of HND? But of course it makes sence as there is lack of available slots at HND.

I randomly came across this headline from earlier this month "S. Korea, Latvia sign preliminary agreement on opening direct air route".

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/news/20 ... 00320.html

South Korea's transport ministry said Sunday it signed a preliminary agreement with its Latvian counterpart to open a direct air route between the two countries.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said it has agreed with Latvia to operate flights that connect the two countries three times a week.

The ministry said South Koreans and Latvians will also be able to travel between the two countries through code-share programs.

"The direct flights between South Korea and Latvia will add to the traveling convenience of South Koreans," an official from the ministry said, claiming the agreement will also attract people from neighboring countries that do not have flights to the European country.


As a direct route from ICN to RIX sounds quite far-fetched, I assume that the writer of the article cut some corners and the "preliminary agreement" they signed was just a typical bilateral agreement allowing flights between the two countries from a legal perspective?

I have a question for those who have travelled on Finnair in the past. I need to go for work to Chongqing and only airlines to offer one stop flights from my airport are Finnair and Qatar. What's AY's long-haul product like? I see they are sending the A333 there.

I guess it's safe to assume that since you are travelling for work you will be flying in J class? I think the best place for detailed information on this would be FlyerTalk's dedicated thread for AY's A330. It's been a while since I've travelled AY's J and while I'm not active on the aforementioned site, I can remember reading someone calling Finnair's A350 hard product a total failure and instead actually preferring the A330. But that's just one opinion. However what I can say myself is that the A330s are starting to show their age.

Soft product wise they have improved a lot over the years and I guess there should be no major issues, but all in all it depends how much of a grumbler you are, I know certain J class customers can be but I'm not sure if you belong to that demographic.

PS. Which aircraft does QR fly to CKG?

Flying in J?

I have flown both airlines in Y and J to Asia, no doubt Qatar's J-product is superb while Finnair is ok. Finnair's A333 feels dated comparing to their A350, though some prefer the J seat on 333, better for sleeping. It looks Qatar flies A332 to CKG, never tried that.

Not much difference in Y, except the last time I had Qatar's B777 and that was worse than anything I've had on Finnair.

Thank you, Finnair offers much better times so I am most likely going to go with them. That said, I don't know if they are making any money in Congqing as they they are selling flights from Vienna for as little as €560 in economy and that seems to be the case with most of Europe from what I saw. This is June we are talking about, so about a month from today.

If you don't mind me asking, what went wrong with your Qatar flight?

The B777 on DOH-BKK felt cramped, not much shoulder room, disappointing catering. Yes have noticed those cheap prices to Chongqing from AY, upgrades available often too. CKG hardly is any gold mine to AY but the route probably is sponsored by the local government, one way or another.

And from Oslo they go from three to five weekly and Arlanda from four to five times weekly.

All in all 14 departures weekly from scandinavia to BKK. Quite impressive.

Finnair adds flights to Mediterranean destinations as a result of high demand.

Finnair adds two flights a week to the Alanya, (Gazipasa) from 17 June to 9 August 2018 and extends the Dalaman operation until the end of October. AY will be flying the flights with the larger Airbus A320-family aircraft. In addition, Finnair will fly flights to Paphos, Skiathos, and Rhodes with a bigger equipment.

In total Finnair adds around 5,000 seats to these routes for S18.

Not surprised about Paphos. The area is home to some 2.000 retired Finns. Finnair has been flying there for years and in the past they used to operate scheduled flights throughout the year on the B752

I visited Paphos last year, on the AY flight there were a large group of Finnish UN Peacekeeping veterans and their families. I learnt over 10,000 Finnish peacekeepers served in Cyprus in the 1960-70s and many still visit the island regularly.

This was noticed by Finnair for sure, they carry a lot of Nordics to Thailand. Next winter AY serves BKK 16x weekly, plus HKT 4x weekly and KBV 2x weekly. Norwegian would be very welcome on the HEL-Thailand routes, not sure if there are any Siberian overflight issues.

Well if we take that literally: no, there are no Siberian overflight issues as the route wouldn’t cross over Siberia. ;)

But as DY doesn’t even use Russian airspace on their flights to DXB (unlike from ARN) it does seem that they are not allowed to fly over Russia from HEL. If they really wanted to fly (south)eastwards, I’m sure there would have been a word or two about it in the media by now.

Yes 'Russian overflight issues' naturally ;) Hopefully these issues will be solved, Norwegian would bring some healthy competition on HEL-Thailand.

Indeed, those people fly to Paphos while a whole different group of Finns flies into LCA and most of them head to places like Agia Napa. :)

But EU is pushing, and should be. For some reasons the air traffic bilaterals are still between individual countries while many other trade agreements are between EU and extra-community countries. IMO EU should enforce EU-wide bilaterals, but I know it does not have muscles, does not want to upset things, and there are much more urgent issues.

Russia particularly insists on individual agreements, whatever the case.

My apologies, but I still can’t see the connection.

Historically you don’t see people discussing Norwegian’s transatlantic operations from the rest of Europe here as they are most commonly being discussed in their own respective threads. Nordic aviation is not the thread where most people would expect to find information about a route from Italy or the UK to the US and most likely it would go unnoticed by many of those who might be more interested in the aforementioned routes.

Just my 2 öre.

The airports in Finnish Lapland had 23% growth last year, more capacity truly needed, Santa has been busy! Little trivia: In 2017 there were traffic from 21 airports from UK to Lapland, mainly charters naturally.

ASK (mill): 3,280.8 (+15.7%)
RPK (mill): 2,711.3 (+15.4%)
Load factor: 82.6 (-0.2p)

In April, Finnair carried 1,069,500 passengers, 11.4% more than in the corresponding period of 2017. The number of passengers grew in Asian traffic (+32.1%), European flights (+8.1%) and domestic traffic (+10.6%), and decreased as a result of changes in the traffic program on North American routes (-26.0%).

Finnair would be ready to start HEL-PUS (Busan) but the South-Korean government want them to co operate with the local airlines Korean Air/Asiana. Finnair says "partnering with them has not been very easy".

They also would like to add flights to Seoul, served now 7x weekly, the route was opened in 2008.

There’s a bit more on that subject here:

The terms that KE and OZ wanted AY to accept are really incomprehensible in this day and age. Very different from how Japan looks at these things.

Unless Avinor (The Norwegian Airport operator) can find new owners for Fagernes Airport, the airport will be closed January 1. 2019, as they will no longer pay for running the airport

Interesting parts of the interview of Kim Dong-hwan, Finnair Korea General Manager.

Finnair Korea General Manager Kim Dong-hwan said the carrier may begin a new flight service connecting Busan and Helsinki by the end of the year.
[...]
"The Korea Airports Corporation and Busan Metropolitan City have been working together to help establish the new route. It will be put into service immediately if the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation approves it."
[...]
"Starting June 1, Finnair will open a branch office in Korea. We will increase our direct flight services traveling from Seoul to Helsinki and develop sustainable services customized for Koreans," Kim said.

AY started Nanjing (NKG) today, their 7th destination in China. This will be served year-round. What's next, finally a permission to double PEK?
