Finnair further expands its UK network with Flybe codeshares

Finnair is extending its network in the United Kingdom with new codeshare services on Flybe flights between the UK and several key European cities.  Finnair’s codes will be added to the following Flybe services when a Finnair flight is also included in the booking:

•    Birmingham, Cardiff, Doncaster-Sheffield and Southampton to Paris CDG
•    Birmingham, Doncaster-Sheffield and Southampton to Amsterdam
•    Birmingham and Southampton to Dusseldorf
•    Birmingham to Berlin Tegel

Both airlines currently cooperate on Flybe-operated routes between Manchester and eight regional airports in the UK including Aberdeen, Belfast, Edinburgh, Exeter, Isle of Man, Jersey, Newquay and Southampton.

“Our growing partnership with Flybe will provide UK travellers with better travel options and even more convenient connections to Finnair’s extensive network in Asia,” says Philip Lewin, Head of Partnerships and Alliances at Finnair. “Finnair customers will be able to earn and redeem Finnair Plus points on any Flybe-operated flight that also carries Finnair’s AY flight designator.”

“The extension of our well established codeshare partnership with Finnair now offers our customers yet more opportunity to travel to and from the UK regions,” says Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer. “It gives both Flybe and Finnair increased network reach and reinforces our commitment to provide our customers with convenient seamless ‘One Stop to the World’ connections from their local airport.”
