New summer route: Chicago

Chicago route opens on 13 June 2015

Finnair will start flying to Chicago next summer, from 13 June to 17 October 2015. Flights will be operated three times a week with Airbus A330 aircraft.

Located on the southern shores of Lake Michigan with a population of 2.7 million within the city limits and more than 9 million in the wider metro area, Chicago is the largest city in the American Midwest and a global hub for business, leisure and the arts. Famous for its skyline and iconic architecture – Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper – the city boasts world-class cultural institutions, professional sports teams, public art, restaurants and shopping.

Due to opening the Chicago route, Finnair's seasonal summer service to Hanoi will be discontinued. Finnair's previously announced new summer destinations in 2015 include Athens, Dublin, Malta and Split.
