Finnair and Flybe to begin cooperation flights

Flybe has today announced the route plans of the recently founded Flybe Nordic airline, jointly owned by Flybe and Finnair.
 
Flybe Nordic, which uses the Flybe brand and is managed operationally by Flybe, will fly routes formerly operated by Finncomm as well as many new routes, thereby strengthening its position in the Nordic countries and the Baltic area. The new routes will also complement feeder traffic to Finnair’s international connections.
 
The new routes, which will also be included in Finnair’s flight schedules, will be flown as code-share flights. Finnair Plus customers can accumulate frequent-flyer points on the Flybe Nordic flights.
 
The deal by which Flybe Nordic acquired Finnish Commuter Airlines was finalised earlier in August. Flybe owns 60% of Flybe Nordic and Finnair 40%.
