Finnair and LATAM Airlines Group Take Two to Tango and Announce Codeshare Partnership

New partnership offers easy access for Finnair customers to South America

Finnair customers looking to fly to Latin America are getting a boost thanks to a new codeshare agreement announced with LATAM Airlines Group.

The partnership will offer new destinations for Finnair customers, as LATAM’s flights will be the first to be flown to South America with a Finnair code. The deal will see Finnair’s AY airline code added to LATAM’s transatlantic flights between Finnair’s gateways in Europe and LATAM’s hubs in São Paulo and in Santiago.

This includes flights between Finnair’s hub in Helsinki and LATAM’s hubs in São Paulo, Brazil, and in Santiago, Chile, via five European gateways: London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Madrid, Barcelona and Milan.

Similarly, LATAM’s LA code will be added to Finnair flights between Helsinki and London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Madrid, Barcelona and Milan, providing LATAM passengers with easy access to Finland.

The new Finnair codeshare flights to São Paulo and Santiago are available to book as of today, for flights starting 1 October 2019.

Philip Lewin, Finnair’s Head of Partnerships and Alliances, said: “We are excited to be able to offer these great new destinations for our customers. We also welcome LATAM customers to explore everything Helsinki and Finnair have to offer.”

Soledad Berrios, LATAM Airlines Group Director of Strategic Alliances, said: “As part of our commitment to connecting Latin America with the world, this new agreement will offer our passengers easier access to exciting destinations in Finland via Helsinki.

“We also look forward to welcoming Finnair customers onboard and offering them the chance to experience our Latin American hospitality.”

Finnair flies up to seven times daily from London Heathrow to Helsinki, where passengers can enjoy quick and convenient connections, from as little as 35 minutes, to destinations across Asia, the Far East and to the United States.

The airline’s modern fleet of aircraft, including 14 state-of-the-art Airbus A350s, provide passengers with unparalleled levels of travel comfort with the carrier’s famed Nordic design and contemporary style.

Customers flying can enjoy complimentary in-flight drinks, fine dining, top-range in-flight entertainment and a generous checked-in baggage allowance of 23kg.
