Finnair Diverts Long-Haul Flights Including Those to Japan due to Strikes: Stockholm and Riga as Layovers

Finnair (Embraer 190 aircraft)

Finnair has announced the impact on the operation of its long-haul routes, including those to Japan, due to strikes by several Finnish trade unions.

Due to the strike affecting the distribution of fuel within Finland, Finnair’s long-haul flights departing from Helsinki will refuel outside of Finland and operate as connecting flights. The impact is expected to continue until March 24.

Among these, the AY61 flight to Tokyo/Haneda, the AY73 flight to Tokyo/Narita, and the AY67 flight to Osaka/Kansai have been operating via Stockholm on March 11 and via Riga from March 12 onwards.

Finavia, which manages and operates 20 airports within Finland, including Helsinki Airport, has issued a statement that, although logistics at all airports are disrupted, efforts are being made to minimize the impact on passengers.
