Posted 19 October 2017 · Add Comment

Finnair and British Airways are extending their current partnership with several new codeshare flights within Europe.


British Airways will place its codes on several of Finnair’s European destinations including the new non-stop flights from London Gatwick to Kittilä and Ivalo, which will begin operating for the winter season from 12 and 14 December respectively.

Finnair will place its codes on British Airways flights between London Heathrow and Tallinn, Copenhagen and Gothenburg. The new code-shares aim to increase the connectivity for both carriers through their respective Helsinki and London airport hubs.

“The extension of our code share agreement with British Airways is great news for our customers as it will give them more opportunities and flexibility to choose from when booking their travel,” said Philip Lewin, Head of Partnerships and Alliances at Finnair.

Rishi Kapoor, Head of Alliances at British Airways said: “We are delighted to offer our customers yet more choice of destinations between Japan and Europe with Finnair as part of our joint partnership with JAL and Iberia, and additionally the opportunity to fly direct to Lapland from London Gatwick this winter.”

Finnair and British Airways are both members of the oneworld alliance and work together jointly through the Siberian Joint Business with Iberia and Japan Airlines for flights to Japan as well as through the Atlantic Joint Business with Iberia and American Airlines for flights over the Atlantic.
