Finnair & KLM Pauses a Number of Asian Routes with Delta withdrawing Codesharing with Aeroflot

Finnair Cancels its flights in Russian airspace to 6 March 2022.

Finnair joins many other European airlines and suspends its flights in Russian airspace for one week. They are preparing for the possible upcoming regulatory changes. This is in addition to Finnair suspending all operations in the Ukrainian airspace for the time being. 

Finnair will cancel flights to Seoul, Osaka, Tokyo and Shanghai in Asia and to Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia on 27 February – 6 March 2022. 

Finnair continues flying from Helsinki to Bangkok, Phuket, Singapore and Delhi and from Stockholm Arlanda to Bangkok and Phuket. The airline will avoid using the Russian airspace which lengthens the travel time approximately one hour. 

Finnair states “Safety is always our first priority. We are following the situation closely and will update any new information on this page. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you and do our best to minimise the effects to you”.
