Finnair to launch daily services between three Nordic capitals and Doha

The services will be operated with Finnair’s Airbus A330 aircraft


Finnair has partnered with Qatar Airways to establish a strategic cooperation between Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen and Doha.

These services will be supported by a codeshare agreement with shared passenger and cargo capacity between both airlines, Finnair said in a statement.

Customers from the three Nordic cities will benefit from connections via Doha to Qatar Airways’ network of around 100 destinations across Australasia, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The collaboration will also open new destinations and connection opportunities across Finnair’s Nordic network for Qatar Airways’ customers, the statement added.

Seven weekly flights each between Doha and Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen will be operated with Finnair’s Airbus A330 aircraft. The services are planned to start between November and December 2022.

Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “As a fellow oneworld member, we enjoy a close relationship with Finnair and these new services to Hamad International Airport are an example of Qatar Airways working with partners for the benefit of our joint customers.”

“Soon, Doha will be the oneworld hub bringing more airline partners together than ever before. With this codeshare agreement, travellers from the Nordics will continue to have excellent connectivity to Doha with Finnair and onwards with Qatar Airways to attractive leisure and key business destinations across Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Middle East.”

“We are delighted to expand our collaboration with our oneworld partner Qatar Airways, offering new connections between Doha and the three Nordic capitals”, says Finnair CEO Topi Manner. “The role of Doha as an international hub is growing, and Qatar Airways has extensive connections from Doha onwards to for example Australasia, the Middle East and Africa.”

Qatar will also be home to the FIFA World Cup later this year, having won hosting rights in 2010.
