Direct flights between Larnaca and Helsinki, Finland, will take place twice a week, offering greater connectivity to 100 destinations – including Asia and the US.

Finnair, Finland’s national and largest airliner, will carry out the flights every Tuesday and Sunday with its A320 and A321 planes.

Both deputy tourism minister Savvas Perdios and Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos praised Finnair’s modern fleet at a press conference on Monday.
