Finnair to lease two Airbus A340-300s from ILFC

Finnair (Helsinki) will lease two 270-seat Airbus A340-300 wide-bodied aircraft for four years from the leasing company ILFC. The aircraft will join the Finnair fleet in late 2010 and early 2011.

Finnair currently has 12 Airbus long-haul aircraft, which fly to nine
destinations in Asia as well as to New York in North America. At the end of this year, one further new Airbus A330 aircraft, ordered earlier, will join the fleet. With the coming additions, Finnair’s long-haul fleet will grow to a total 15 Airbus aircraft by the beginning of next year.
