Flight information

We will transition to a limited network as of 16 March

Due to impacts from coronavirus outbreak on air travel, we start transitioning to the limited network and will cancel several flights from 16–31 March, the majority of flights as of 1 April. Please read more and see the list of cancelled and available routes.

First published on 16 March 2020

If you’ve booked a flight for 16 March–30 June 2020, please read below instructions for what you can do now. Our customer service is currently heavily congested – if your flight departure is over three days from now, please contact us closer to your flight. 

The coronavirus epidemic has had a severe impact on the demand for air travel, and several countries have set restrictions on air travel. We are now making substantial adjustments to our traffic and will cancel the majority of our flights temporarily as of 1 April until the situation improves. We start transitioning to the limited network immediately and will cancel several flights already from 16–31 March. You’ll see the list of flights to be operated in April-June here. Please note that we will operate this traffic plan provided that there are no travel restrictions set by the authorities.

We will cancel flights from our systems gradually, and at this stage, we are cancelling flights until the end of June. If the situation improves, we will do our best to add flights and routes to our traffic plan. 

Check the list of so far cancelled flights here. The list was last updated on 24 March at 2 p.m. and includes also already earlier, before 16 March cancelled routes.

You can check the up-to-date flight information for the upcoming few days here.

We are extremely sorry about the disruption and uncertainty this situation causes you. We follow the situation closely and will update any new information on this page.
