The Edinburgh to Helsinki flight will operate three times weekly from 18 April 2016 to 27 October 2016. It will be operated by a Finnair Airbus A319 and open up connecting flights to Finnair’s Asian network. 

Gordon Dewar, chief executive at Edinburgh Airport, said: "This is a significant route for Scotland and one we have been working very hard to secure.  Not only will it give Scots fantastic connections to the Far East via Finnair’s excellent hub in Helsinki, it will also open up our country to significant traffic from Russia, China, Japan and Finland itself."
