Catherine Grennell-Whyte said: “Finnair’s key USP in delivering the fastest connections from Europe to Asia will continue to take precedence next year. We can deliver to the consumer a half-day of time saving when travelling to Japan and destinations in China, Singapore and Thailand from Dublin. Summer 2019 will see an increase in frequencies to Asia with a 15% capacity increase to Japan and 12% increase to the greater China area.
