Changes in our traffic plan for winter 2022-2023

We have updated our traffic plan for winter 2022-2023. See the instructions here if your travel plans are affected due to changes.

We have adjusted our traffic plan for winter 2022-2023, with a view to the Russian airspace closure. Finnair flies to ten Asian destinations, five US destinations and over 60 European destinations from Helsinki during the winter season. Finnair also have direct flights to the US and Thailand from Stockholm Arlanda. 

Finnair offers smooth connections from Europe to its Asian and US network, as well as to the popular winter destinations Ivalo, Kittilä and Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland. Lapland offers authentic winter experiences from skiing to husky rides, and those wishing to catch the magic of the Northern Lights have plenty of opportunities for that. 

We are following the demand and changes in travel guidance closely and will adjust our traffic plan accordingly during winter 2022-2023. You can check available destinations and flights on our booking engine

How do I know if my flight is cancelled or the schedule is changed?

If there are changes to your flight, we’ll contact you personally via SMS and/or email. Please go to Manage booking and check that we have your current contact information. 

Your options if your flight is cancelled

If you have received a message of a flight cancellation, these are your options:  

  • We do our best to re-route you to your destination with other Finnair flights. Please note that the availability of alternative flights is currently limited. We’ll send you your new flight information via SMS and/or email, and you can check it and other possible flight options also via Manage booking.  
  • In case you don’t want to use any of the flights in your booking and want to cancel your whole booking, you can apply for a refund online. If you want to use some of the flights in your booking and apply for a refund of a cancelled flight, please contact our customer service.  
  • If we have cancelled all the flights in your booking, you can apply for a refund online.  
  • Due to the schedule or/and flight change, unfortunately we might not be able to confirm some of the pre-purchased or pre-booked travel extras such as meals or pet transportation to your new flights. You can see confirmed services in Manage Booking. If you do not receive travel extras purchased from Finnair, you can apply for a refund online.  
  • For flight tickets and extras purchased through other service providers, such as a travel agent, please apply for the refund directly from them.
