Finnair expands further in Japan

Finnair is further adding capacity to Japan this winter season and for the coming summer season. The airline currently operates to four destinations in Japan – Tokyo Narita, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka – and Japan is Finnair ́s largest market outside its home market Finland.

The airline expands this winter by adding a fifth destination, Sapporo in Hokkaido. Flights will start from December 15 twice a week and last until March. The airline hopes to attract ski fans to the destination as snow in Hokkaido is considered one of the best in the world. For the summer season 2020, starting at the end of March, Finnair will launch a daily frequency to Tokyo Haneda Airport, an airport located close to the city centre. The new route will be in addition to Finnair’s daily flights to Tokyo’s Narita Airport.

“Finnair has operated over 35 years between Japan and Finland. With the new flights, we are happy to offer even better connections between Tokyo and over 100 destinations in Europe,” says Ole Orvér, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair.
