Finnair Cargo and IAG Cargo is to enhance connectivity for its customers with five weekly Airbus A350 flights between Helsinki Airport and London Heathrow Airport.

This is an additional three extra widebody aircraft flights per week as there was previously only two and the new frequency will start from 3 October.

The carriers will share capacity on five flights per week on an A350 aircraft and both say the new arrival times into Heathrow and Helsinki will allow better connectivity for both partners onto their respective transatlantic and Asian networks.

Finnair and IAG had previously operated a freighter between Helsinki and London alongside two bellyhold routes, but have made the switch to an all bellyhold offering using the extensive cargo capacity on the A350.
