PHOTOS: Finnair launches Pula service


Finnair yesterday launched two weekly seasonal summer flights from Helsinki to Pula, marking its third destination in Croatia. The service will operate until August 18 with an Airbus A319 aircraft. Speaking to EX-YU Aviation News recently, Finnair spokesperson, Mark Bosworth, said, "The Croatian market serves as a great destination for Finnair customers from Northern Europe and Asia. We have also seen increasing numbers of passengers from Croatia using Finnair on their trips. Demand for Croatian destinations has been growing year by year and we have increased our flights to the area consequently". He added, "For the time being, the demand from our Asian units has been to Croatian coastal areas. However, when Asian tour operators create more products for the former Yugoslav area we want to be their first choice of airline". Finnair flies between Asia, Europe and North America with an emphasis on fast connections via Helsinki, carrying more than nine million passengers annually and connecting fifteen cities in Asia with more than sixty destinations in Europe. It is part of the Oneworld airline alliance. Further details for the Helsinki - Pula service can be found here.
