For the first time, Finnair will be offering discounted faculty and student flights (for students 18-34) via studentuniverse.co.uk on routes from the UK to China. Finnair’s hub in Helsinki provides Finnair with a natural competitive advantage, as the fastest routes between many destinations in Europe and megacities in China go through Helsinki.
Currently, Finnair flies to cities in the following Asian destinations: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This partnership comes at a great time as Finnair has recently added new gateways in China and Japan, and increased capacity to their entire Asian network by utilising the A350. Travelers booking on Finnair can take advantage of a stopover in Helsinki (Finland’s capital) for up to five nights on the way to/from their destination at no extra flight cost.

For the last six years, Finnair has been selected by its passengers as the Best Airline in Northern Europe in Skytrax’s World Airline Awards.
