Finnair is adding additional frequencies to its New York JFK route for the upcoming summer 2020 season.

Between April 4 and October 24, Finnair will operate three additional weekly frequencies on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Between May 4 and October 24, a fourth additional frequency will be added on Tuesdays. Furthermore, a fifth additional frequency will be flown on Sundays for the peak summer season between June 8 and August 30.

Finnair has flown to New York for over 50 years and currently flies daily flights to JFK airport. With these new frequencies, Finnair is adding a total of 250 flights between both destinations. The new frequencies will be operated primarily with an Airbus A350 aircraft.

“For over 50 years, our JFK flights have been Finnair’s flagship route in North America, and we are truly excited to finally bring the A350 on this important route for Finnair,” says Ole Orvér, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “While preparing their summer travel plans, our customers will also have the flexibility of combining their travel with our other transatlantic partners, which operate over 105 city pairs between Europe and America.”
