DFW AIRPORT, TX (March 27, 2022) ─ Today, Finnair, Atlantic Joint Business (AJB) and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) launched the inaugural flight with direct flights from DFW to Helsinki, Finland (HEL).

“Partnerships mean more routes and more service for our customers around the world,” said Anmol Bhargava, American’s vice president of alliances. “American welcomes our Atlantic Joint Business and oneworld partner, Finnair, to Dallas Fort Worth as their new DFW-Helsinki flight provides more options for customers to reach Finland and the Nordic region, Baltics, and Russia.”
In addition to the new flights through DFW, Finnair operates direct flights to Helsinki from Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. During the winter season, Finnair is also flying to Stockholm, Sweden, from Los Angeles, New York and Miami.
