"Timetables for the new route have been planned according to local German business wishes for connections from Nuremberg via Helsinki to Asia, as well as for local business travel," explains Finnair VP Global Sales Petri Schaaf. Nuremberg is at the centre of northern Bavaria. About five million people live in the area, about two million of which inhabit the Nuremberg, Furth and Erlanger industrial region. The biggest companies are in the IT and telecommunications, logistics and pharmaceuticals industries. Nuremberg is also a significant tourist destination, since the famous and historic cities of Bayreuth, Rothenburg, Coburg and Bamberg.
Finnair’s new Embraer aircraft are being used to fly daily to the city, with Monday, Tuesday and Sunday departures from Helsinki in the mornings and on other days connecting with early evening arrivals from Asia. The German city is already the fifth new destination Finnair has launched this spring. Other new European routes include Gdansk, Bucharest, Ljubljana and Lisbon. Flights to Finnair’s newest long-haul destination Mumbai begin in June.
