Changes in our traffic plan for autumn and winter 2021-2022
As the coronavirus pandemic still affects air travel and flight demands globally, we have reviewed our traffic plan for autumn and winter 2021 - 2022. See the instructions here if your travel plans were affected due to changes.
Several countries have set requirements for travellers arriving in the country. It is good to know that some countries will collect travel-related information regarding your journey already before you begin your travel.
During the peak hours and busier times, the number of customers on all our flights and at the airports increases. Congestion is expected from time to time and service points, such as check-in or security control may have queues. Please arrive at the airport latest 2 hours before your flight or if you are travelling to the USA, latest 3 hours before your flight.
The coronavirus situation still affects air travel significantly, and many countries have set travel restrictions. We will adjust our traffic plan according to the demand and changing travel restrictions.
Iberia to operate our Barcelona and Madrid flights as of 16 August 2021
While Finnair air traffic is still low, we are looking for cost-effective ways to carry out operations. As of 16 August 2021, we will restart our Barcelona operations by leasing an Airbus A321 aircraft and crew from our oneworld partner Iberia. The leased aircraft will also operate our Madrid flights as of 2 September 2021.
Changes in carrying pets in hold on our intercontinental flights
