Finnair has made this announcement:

Finnair is poised to enter the largest expansion in its history during the upcoming winter season.

Finnair’s growth strategy will be in full swing during the winter season with 20 intercontinental destinations, over 100 destinations in Europe and a significant increase in capacity for Lapland destinations.

Finnair is opening new routes to Goa, India on November 1, to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on November 5, to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic on November 30 and to Havana, Cuba on December 1.

“This winter, we are entering the biggest expansion phase in our airline’s 94-year history,” says Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “We are opening several new destinations, expanding our network and fleet including our eleven Airbus A350s, adding capacity to Finnish Lapland and taking important strides in our customer experience. It’s a very exciting time to fly Finnair.”
