Finnair joins hands with Kingfisher for seamless connectivity

india Updated: Dec 16, 2010 20:26 IST

Passengers will be able to book a single ticket to fly to Helsinki from seven more Indian cities, besides Delhi, with Nordic carrier Finnair joining hands with Kingfisher Airlines for this facility.

Kingfisher will offer flight from seven cities, including Mumbai, Chennai, to Delhi for Helsinki.

"Kingfisher flights from Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Jaipur and Ahmedabad will offer extremely good morning connections to Finnair's vast European network," Finnair said in a statement.

The passengers would also be benefited by leveraging Finnair's European network, comprising around 60 cities.

Currently, Finnair operates six flights a week between New Delhi and Helsinki, which it plans to increase to daily service from January next year. The air carrier reduced its service to New Delhi from seven to six days earlier this month.

Kingfisher Airlines was inducted into the global airline OneWorld earlier this year and this would allow partner airlines to sell routes operated by the Indian carrier.

"We are pleased to offer these convenient connections from important cities via the new and modern T3 terminal in Delhi," said Kari Stolbow, Finnair's Director for the Indian sub-continent.

The airline serves 11 Asian destinations and announced flights to Singapore starting May, 2011 and Asia accounts for nearly half of the airline's revenue.
