A deal between Finnair and Qatar Airways provides for daily flights from Helsinki, Stockholm, and Copenhagen to Doha, Qatar.

According to a press release issued by Finnair on August 29, 2022, the airlines anticipate launching these services in November or December 2022.

Finnair stated that it and Qatar Airways were “exploring opening services additionally between another European destination and Doha” in addition to the connections from the Nordic capital cities to Doha.

Three weekly itineraries will be used by Finnair’s Airbus A330 aircraft to operate the services to Doha, and they are as follows:

7 weekly flights to and from Helsinki
7 weekly flights to and from Stockholm
7 weekly flights to and from Copenhagen

According to the release, a complete codeshare agreement with shared passenger and cargo capacity would support the deal, which calls for forging a “long-term strategic collaboration” between the two airlines.

Akbar Al Baker, the chief executive of Qatar Airways Group, offered his thoughts on the alliance with Finnair and the goal of the Gulf carrier to establish Doha as a “Oneworld hub.”

“As a fellow Oneworld member, we enjoy a close relationship with Finnair and these new services to Hamad International Airport are an example of Qatar Airways working with partners for the benefit of our joint customers,” said Al Baker.

Al Baker added: “Soon, Doha will be the Oneworld hub bringing more airline partners together than ever before. With this codeshare agreement, travelers from the Nordics will continue to have excellent connectivity to Doha with Finnair and onwards with Qatar Airways to attractive leisure and key business destinations across Asia, Africa, Australasia, and the Middle East.”

“We are delighted to expand our collaboration with our Oneworld partner Qatar Airways, offering new connections between Doha and the three Nordic capitals”, says Finnair CEO Topi Manner. “The role of Doha as an international hub is growing, and Qatar Airways has extensive connections from Doha onwards to for example Australasia, the Middle East, and Africa.”
