Finnair will launch daily service between Helsinki and Gdansk in Poland on March 27, 2011, with the flights to be operated by its regional-airline partner Finncomm Airlines.
Gdansk will be Finnair’s third destination in Poland, in addition to Krakow and Warsaw.
“Through the new route, we’ll be able to serve our customers in the Gdansk area better than before. The daily service to Helsinki will open to residents of Gdansk and the surrounding area fast connections to Asia via Helsinki,” says Ville Iho, Finnair’s senior vice president operations.
Finncomm Airlines will operate the Helsinki-Gdansk route using ATR turboprops. The airline operates four ATR 42-500s, eight ATR 72-500s (with four more on order) and two Embraer 170 jets.
Its flights from Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) to Gdansk’s Lech Walesa Airport (IATA code GDN, also known as Rebiechowo Airport) will depart HEL on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:45 a.m. and on other days of the week at 4:40 p.m.
Finncomm Airlines’ flights from Gdansk are timed to leave GDN on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:15 a.m., and on other days of the week at 6:10 p.m.
