Finnair Plus will give you a 20% discount on the miles required for an award flight if you book by November 17, 2021. Finnair Plus has some nice sweet spots that are now even sweeter with that 20% discount, e.g. Copenhagen – Iceland round trips for 12,000 instead of 15,000 miles. A business class ticket to the USA costs 64,000 miles each way and starts at merely €58 in fees for the entire round trip.
You can also start your trip in 2022. You only have to book the flights by November 17, 2021. The long-haul destinations are limited to:
- Phuket (until March 25, 2022)
- Bangkok, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Singapore (until June 15, 2022)
- Japan & USA (until July 14, 2022)
|Within Northern Europe||12.000||20.000|
|Europe to Asia and North America||72.000||128.000|
The following (sometimes somewhat unusual) destinations are included in the Northern Europe region:
- St. Petersburg
In addition to all other destinations in continental Europe, Europe also includes Tel Aviv and Dubai (unfortunately we could not find any availability to Dubai). These are great sweet spots, especially in Business Class!
You can add a stopover in Helsinki on long-haul flights to North America and Asia.
By the way, award flights can be rebooked free of charge up to 7 days before departure and one piece of luggage of up to 23 kg is included in economy class. In addition, Finnair only passes on the real taxes & fees, so you don’t have to pay a fuel surcharge or anything. For example, Copenhagen – Helsinki – Iceland has DKK 420 (~€56) taxes & fees.
