Little could dent the confidence of Finnair’s ebullient CEO Pekka Vauramo during a press briefing in London, as reports.
Finnair is poised to increase its connections with the UK as part of its accelerated growth plans. The oneworld carrier, buoyed by recent progress, has built on the successful marketing of its Helsinki home as a transit hub for traffic between Europe and Asia.
Finnair currently has five daily slots at London/Heathrow and recently increased the number of flights served by its flagship Airbus A350 on the route to five per week. It also flies to Manchester twice daily and offers a seasonal thrice-weekly flight to Edinburgh.
“We are definitely going to increase the number of airports [we serve] in the UK,” revealed Vauramo.
