Finnair to cut capacity by 90% as of April 1st as Covid-19 continues to have severe impact on demand for air travel. Finnair joins a long list of airlines that have already reduced capacity or plan to so in the very near future. Finnair will cancel between 1,500 to 2,000 flights from March 16th – March 31st.
“The coronavirus epidemic has decreased air travel dramatically, but we want to maintain the most critical air connections for Finland also in this exceptional situation,” says Topi Manner, Finnair’s CEO. “We continue to follow the situation closely, adding routes and frequencies to the traffic program as demand returns. We hope to be able to return to normal operations as soon as the coronavirus situation alleviates. We are extremely sorry about the disruption and uncertainty the situation is causing to our customers and their travel plans. In this situation, the capacity cuts are unavoidable – we cannot fly customers in a situation where we may not be able to fly them back home.”
