Finland’s flag carrier Finnair will launch a brand-new nonstop flight from its base in Helsinki (HEL) to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW).

The all-new service will commence on March 27, 2022, and will operate 4 times per week.

Dallas is one of a few new destinations Finnair is adding to its route network, including Busan (PUS), Sapporo (CTS), and Tokyo (HND).

Let’s review the full details.

Finnair’s First Time in Dallas

In a press release, Ole Orvér, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair, said the airline is “pleased to strengthen [its] network in the U.S. by adding Dallas as a new destination.”

Finnair has scheduled 4 round-trip flights per week to connect the Finnish capital with the giant Texas metropolis. They’ll operate on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Helsinki 4 p.m. — Arrive Dallas 6:50 p.m.
  • Depart Dallas 8:40 p.m. — Arrive Helsinki 2:55 p.m.

The flight times are blocked at 10 hours and 15 minutes for the Dallas to Helsinki leg and at 10 hours and 50 minutes on the reverse.

Spending that many hours in the air won’t be so bad given that the flights will be operated by the airline’s newest, most modern, and one of its most environmentally friendly aircraft — the Airbus A350-900.

Dallas will become the fourth U.S. destination for Finnair once flights begin early next year. The airline recently resumed flying to the rest of its previously served U.S. destinations: Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), and New York (JFK). All 3 of these routes had been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dallas’ Strengthening Position as a Oneworld Hub

Dallas-Fort Worth is the largest hub of American Airlines, Finnair’s partner in the Oneworld alliance.

“Our customers will be able to enjoy great connections to other cities in North America through the extensive network of our alliance partner, American Airlines,” said Orvér.

In addition to American Airlines, Finnair will join several other Oneworld airlines that serve (or will serve) the airport, including British Airways, Iberia (which is starting nonstop flights to Madrid in April 2022), Japan Airlines, Qantas (when direct flights to Sydney restart in February 2022), and Qatar Airways.

The connectivity that Dallas-Fort Worth provides means American Airlines and Oneworld frequent flyers can benefit from 1-stop connections from across America to destinations around the globe.

Final Thoughts

Reconnecting the world after the worst of the pandemic is a high priority for airlines such as Finnair.

The new nonstop service from Helsinki to Dallas commencing February 6, 2022, will provide American Airlines and Oneworld frequent flyers alike the opportunity to explore Finland, Scandinavia, and beyond.
