Finnair is making changes to its traffic program for the summer 2017 season, due to operational reasons which relate to a temporary shortage of crew and aircraft.
Finnair will suspend its flights between Helsinki and Miami between May 4th and September 29th and will also cancel two of its weekly frequencies on its Helsinki-Chicago route during the month of May.
Finnair previously announced that the Miami route would be operated by Iberia until May 1, 2017.
“We are very sorry about the disruption this is causing our customers, and we are doing our best to offer suitable alternative routings for them,” says Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair.
“We are contacting all customers with bookings on the affected flights to offer an alternative routing. In case a suitable alternative routing cannot be found, customers may apply for a ticket refund. Finnair continues to offer Miami as a destination throughout the summer with our joint business partners American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia.”
Flights to Miami will resume on October 1 with three weekly frequencies.
