Finnair has entered the battle for business class customers on the routes from European Airports to Asia. Qatar Airways and Etihad are currently selling discounted tickets for flights in their premium cabin, now the Oneworld member from Scandinavia is catching up. Prices for a round trip start at only €1,411, and you can choose from various destinations.
There’s decent availability from now until March 2020, and you should even be able to find the occasional trip over the winter holidays.
All trips include a layover in Helsinki, Finnair’s hub. And here’s the most significant advantage of this deal over the ones from Qatar and Etihad: only one stop and the long-haul flight will be directly from Europe to Asia. Also, the carrier will operate an Airbus A350 on all intercontinental flights. Great service and an excellent hard product are guaranteed. Check out this review to learn more:
Search & Book
Tickets for this deal will be sold until October 22nd, and the offer is valid for trips commencing between November 1st and March 30th, 2020. There are minimum stay requirements of 5 days or one night from Saturday to Sunday. And you can spend up to 1 month at your destination.
If you care to visit a second city during your trip, then one stopover in Helsinki is free of charge. But you can’t just start your journey there. Although skipping the last segment on your way back is a possibility. Find out more in this article.
Use Google Flights (instructions) to have all discounted connections displayed. Choose from the multiple options and take those dates to our Travel Dealz flight search to compare prices that OTAs offer. Or book via the carrier’s website. This might result in higher prices, but we recommend it.
