Flight information

We are operating a limited traffic plan, this is what you can do if your flight is cancelled or you have a booking for 16 March – 30 June 2020

The coronavirus epidemic has had a severe impact on the demand for air travel, and several countries have set restrictions for travelling. Kindly read on to see our flights to be operated in April-June and your options if you have a cancelled flight or a booking for 16 March – 30 June 2020.

First published on 2 April 2020

We have transitioned to a limited network and cancelled the majority of our flights temporarily as of 1 April until the situation improves. We have now cancelled flights until the end of June. We are operating a limited traffic plan on 1 April – 30 June 2020.

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. If the situation improves, we will do our best to add flights and routes to our traffic plan. We aim to return to a normal traffic plan as soon as possible and will tell about it, when we know more.

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.

WHEN YOUR FLIGHT IS CANCELLED ON 16 MARCH - 30 JUNE

  • When your flight is cancelled, we’ll contact you personally via SMS and/or e-mail. Please go to Manage booking and check that we have your current contact information.
  • You can change your travel dates until 30 November 2020 without a change fee by contacting our customer service. You can change your travel dates if
    • You made your booking via Finnair channels.
    • You have a Finnair operated and marketed flight.
    • There are available seats on your chosen new flight.
    • You make the change before the departure of your original flight. Please note that you need to select new dates for your travel when making the change. 
    • Please note that the change in the ticket rules doesn’t apply to Finnair Holidays, Aurinkomatkat (Suntours) and other tour operators’ customers.
    • If you have a group reservation, please contact your travel agency.
  • Did you change your travel dates already once and would like to change them again? You can do it through Manage booking and travel until 30 November 2020 when the above listed requirements are fulfilled.
  • You can apply for a refund for the unused part of your flight ticket just by filling in this online form. When any of the flights in your booking (for example only the return flight) has been cancelled, you can apply for a refund for all the unused flights on the same ticket. You can also choose a Finnair gift voucher as a refund option, when you have paid your ticket fully with money, meaning through online banking or credit card. We, unfortunately, have delays in the refund processing because of high refund application volumes. Our average handling time is approximately 8 weeks.
  • If your flight is cancelled but you still want to travel, we do our best to re-route to your destination with other Finnair flights. Please note that the availability of alternative flights is very limited at the moment.
