September 10, 2015: Finnair will add widebody belly cargo capacity three times a week between Helsinki and London Heathrow from 25 October 2015.
Finnair has recently established its third cargo hub in London to better connect the United Kingdom with its extensive Asian network, and to offer improved connections for Finnair customers to North America utilizing the extensive cargo network of its partner IAG Cargo. Finnair also has cargo hubs in Brussels, Belgium, and in Helsinki, Finland.
The added wide-body belly cargo capacity on the Helsinki-London route complements the freighter service Finnair and IAG Cargo share between the cities, as well as the 35 weekly frequencies with A320 series aircraft. "Our customers value the reliability which comes from Finnair's world-class punctuality and reliability on scheduled flights and our commitment to offering the highest quality cargo handling. The added wide-body capacity will be a great help in better connecting us with IAG Cargo's network," says Antti Kuusenmäki, Head of Finnair Cargo.
Finnair Cargo will serve the London hub with wide-body passenger aircraft on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays, and with freighter aircraft on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
