Finnair has announced a new transatlantic link to the west coast with three flights a week to Los Angeles.
The Helsinki to Los Angeles service will commence on March 31, 2019 and becomes its first US destination regularly served by new Airbus A350 aircraft.
It is the fifth US city in the Finnair network after New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Miami.
We are very happy to expand our North American network and fly a new route to Los Angeles with our Airbus A350. We opened our route to San Francisco two years ago with tremendous success, proving that California and the West Coast are very popular with our customers," said Juha Järvinen, Finnair chief commercial officer.
It is being operated within the multi-airline Atlantic Joint Business which includes American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia.
Together, the four airlines operate more than 100 daily return flights between Europe and North America.
