Finnair has announced that it will further reduce flights across all its routes in October. The national airline will operate an average of 70-80 flights a day, instead of an initially planned schedule of 200 daily flights.
The company will fly to a total of 42 destinations in Europe and Asia in October, but with reduced frequencies on almost all routes.
Finnair said in a press release that operating flights according to the previous plan is no longer feasible due to low demand for travel caused by the coronavirus pandemic and related travel restrictions.
The airline said it operated about 350 daily flights in October 2019.
New routes to Barcelona, St. Petersburg and Stuttgart, as well as domestic destinations like Turku and Tampere will be postponed, the company said.
Finnair said it communicates flight cancellation information directly to affected customers and offers them an alternative flight whenever possible. Customers can also opt for a full refund if the new flight offered is not suitable.
It was previously reported that Finnair carried 85.8 percent fewer passengers in August compared to the same period one year ago.
