Finnair and oneworld partner Qatar Airways have concluded an agreement to establish a long-term strategic cooperation between Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen and Doha. Finnair and Qatar Airways are exploring opening services also between another European destination and Doha.
These services will be supported by a comprehensive codeshare agreement with shared passenger and cargo capacity between both airlines.
Customers from the three Nordic cities will benefit from seamless connections via Doha to Qatar Airways’ extensive network of around 100 destinations across Australasia, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The collaboration will also open new destinations and connection opportunities across Finnair’s Nordic network for Qatar Airways’ customers.
The services are planned to start between November and December 2022. They will be operated with Finnair’s Airbus A330 aircraft featuring Finnair’s new long-haul cabins, including industry-leading Air Lounge business class seats, a brand-new premium economy travel class and refreshed economy class.
The flights to Doha are to be sold and marketed by both Finnair and Qatar Airways as per the schedule below:
- 7 weekly flights to and from Helsinki
- 7 weekly flights to and from Stockholm
- 7 weekly flights to and from Copenhagen
As a result of these new feeder routes to Doha, Finnair will not operate eight long-haul routes this winter from Stockholm (Arlanda) and from Helsinki.
