Finnair has announced it will add frequencies to its service between Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Helsinki Airport, increasing the weekly flights from three in summer 2015 to five in summer 2016.
This will further improve connectivity beyond Chicago to American Airlines’ extensive network in the Americas. This five times a week service connects well also to Finnair’s Asian network beyond Helsinki.
The Chicago-Helsinki route is served with Finnair Airbus A330 aircraft. The flights to Chicago O’Hare are operated from Helsinki on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Finnair’s Chicago service is included in the joint business on transatlantic traffic with fellow oneworld alliance partners British Airways, Iberia, American Airlines and American’s merger partner US Airways. Chicago is a hub for American, which allows Finnair’s customers quick codeshare connections to destinations throughout the United States, including San Francisco and Los Angeles. The joint business between Finnair and the cooperating airlines gives customers the possibility to mix and match flights on different carriers for the best pricing and scheduling.
Finnair first launched seasonal service from Chicago to Helsinki in June 2015. In addition to Chicago, Finnair operates daily to New York JFK and Miami, and together with its joint business partners, offers over 120 daily departures over the Atlantic.
