The first Juneyao Air flight landed at Helsinki Airport early in the morning on Monday, 12 October 2020. Finavia’s rescue services arranged an impressive water salute for Juneyao’s aircraft, following the tradition of international airports when opening a new route.
Helsinki is the airline’s main destination in Europe. At the moment, Juneyao Air flies to Helsinki Airport from Zhengzhou and Shanghai.
“The new connection strengthens Helsinki’s position as a significant hub for Asian flights and is an important development for the future. It also supports Finland’s export trade and security of supply. We have worked for this new route for a long period of time,” says Finavia’s Vice President, Sales and Route Development Petri Vuori.
The airline operates the route on Mondays with a Boeing 787 aircraft.
Zhengzhou, with a population of millions, is the capital of the Henan province in China, and has a long and colourful history. It is a significant and modern industrial city, and an important financial and commercial centre in China.
Finavia welcomes COVID-19 dogs to Helsinki Airport. The company is pleased with the city of Vantaa’s efforts to test new and efficient ways to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 dogs will soon start working at Helsinki Airport. The dogs’ sensitive noses are expected to speed up the process of identifying those infected with COVID-19. The city of Vantaa believes that the dogs will be an efficient method of ensuring health and safety at airports.
