Finland and China agree on additional flights to Shanghai
In their regular negotiations on 16–17 November 2021, Finland and China agreed that flights from Finland to Shanghai could be increased. The number of weekly routes will be raised from seven to 14.
The countries agreed to abandon all route and waypoint restrictions. This means that airlines operating in Finland will have more freedom to choose their destinations in China.
Air traffic to China can grow when travel restrictions are eased. In practice, the new routes can be deployed once the restrictions are lifted.
