Due to airspace closure of Pakistan, some Finnair flights were unfortunately disrupted. On flights between Helsinki and Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore there may have been delays due to longer flight routes and possible fueling stops. The timetables of flights between Helsinki and Delhi during the month of May and June and until July 20th were also changed in order to avoid flight delays. Affected customers were contacted directly by Finnair’s customer service.
The airspace closure does not affect our flights to/from China and Japan.
We are following the situation closely and will update any new information on this page. We do our best to minimize the effects on our customers.
