Desmond Chacko, general manager for India operations, said that on an average Finland is the fifth largest contributor of foreign tourists to Goa. With 6,000 Finnish citizens visiting Goa and given the demand seen in charter operations, Finnair decided to operate scheduled flights to the state.

“With the expected arrival of four new Airbus A350 aircraft in 2017, we are pressing ahead with our growth strategy,” says Juha J√§rvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “These newest additions will offer even more travel options and flexibility for our customers travelling between Asia and Europe through our efficient Helsinki airport hub which guarantees a short and smooth connection.”

2Finnair is also expanding with new scheduled flights to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, Havana in Cuba, and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic and will be adding extra frequencies to many of its popular winter holiday and business destinations in Asia.
