Finnair will be launching its newest link to China with a new route to Guangzhou.

According to Finnair, the Helsinki-based airline will start a weekly service between Helsinki and Guangzhou on September 6. Using Airbus A350 aircraft, the weekly flights will depart every Tuesday.

The Guangzhou flight offers connectivity to a range of Finnair's European destinations with transfer testing - as required by Chinese authorities – available at Helsinki Airport for the flight to Guangzhou.

“We are excited to return to Guangzhou and look forward to gradually increasing our offering for the Chinese market,” Finnair Chief Commercial Officer Ole Orver said in a statement.

The new link to Guangzhou will be the second connection to China for Finnair. Finnair also operates weekly flights to Shanghai.
