New air transport services between Finland and China

Press release 24.04.2017 10.12 fi en

Finland and China have agreed on new air transport routes and signed a Memorandum of Understanding on air transport. Negotiations on air transport agreement between Finland and China were held on 20–21 April in Helsinki.

It was agreed that airlines could launch services between Finland and Nanjing and that Finland could open a route to Beijing also from Rovaniemi. Limitations regarding the number of the operating airlines were removed, which means that in future the countries are free to designate several airlines as their air service operators.

The next air transport negotiations between the countries will be held in China in 2019.
