Does anyone know if Finnair still does charter flights HEL-YVR in the summer?
I can't even seem to get any info from travel agencies, of course on the AY website there is no info at all about charters. I would be extremely grateful to anyone who could pass on any info.

They use to do SFO many summers, but I haven't seen them there for about 3 years now. Sure missed them!

AY usually has this HEL-YVR charter once or twice during summer. I think it's best to ask themselves via their website - they usuallu are very quick with their answers.

Finnair flies three times a week HEL-YYZ next summer (2006, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays) as well as to BOS twice a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays). Both flights operated again with B757 equipment starting in June.

This summer the Boston flight will stop stop in Stockholn/Arlanda, instead of Stockholm/NYO.

This winter their holiday division is also operating Miami-Helsinki via Halifax (no traffic rights on MIA-YHZ or YHZ-HEL, strictly a fuel stop) due to lack of MD11s for the MIA flight due to conversion to a new C-class.

Have plane will go anywhere. Finnair actually operated two charters this summer to Marquette, Michigan to support FinnFest. Both were with 757's. The SFO was regularly scheduled service that was suspended about the same time that Swissair quit San Francisco. My guess is that they needed the plane elsewhere such as the far east.

According to timetables on www.finnair.com, the two first BOS flights are non-stop from HEL and the first YYZ flight is via BOS!

I wouldn't say the only reason for MIA to drop to 757 service was the lack of aircraft. There was a lot of built-up demand for direct seasonal Florida flights before AY started them two years ago. But now, the demand has been satisfied and the same people won't take there next holiday there. That's why this year MIA flights are only once a week with 757.



AY and ANA rock!

There is still heavy consistent demand, as many Finns visit South Florida on an annual basis. The numbers aren't what they used to be, but they are still pretty significant. I do get what your saying though, so it could have been a contributing factor, but if Finnair had the MD11s to spare, I bet they'd been using them to MIA this winter. I guess we'll have to see what Finnair decides to send us next winter.
