Info

Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s current immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.

According to the fare rules, tickets will be sold for this price until October 31, 2020. The travel period lasts from October 2020 through June 2020. You have to be back in Europe on or before July 31, 2021, to get the lowest price. Aside from a block out between December 10, 2020, and January 10, 2021, general availability seems to be pretty good all the way through from October 2020 through June 2021.

The best way to find travel dates for these flights is directly on Finnair’s homepage. Sadly, they do not appear either on Google Flights nor the ITA Matrix. The airline previews available prices as soon as you enter dates in their search mask.
