New seasonal flights to SFO from Helsinki to begin next year

New seasonal flights between Helsinki, Finland and San Francisco on Finnair will begin in June 2017, San Francisco International Airport officials said Thursday.

Finnair will operate weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays between the two cities from June 1 to September 30.

The new flights will be operated as part of the joint business between Finnair, American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia, a partnership that allows customers to get lower prices on transatlantic flights.

Airport officials said because of Helsinki’s location, the route to San Francisco will offer competitive travel times for travelers in Scandinavia, the Baltic states, Russia and many European cities.
