An agreement has been reached between Finnair and one world member Qatar Airways to develop a long-term strategic partnership between Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Doha. Another European city and Doha are potential routes that Finnair and Qatar Airways are exploring.

A thorough codeshare agreement will support these services, sharing both airlines’ passenger and cargo capacity. Customers traveling from the three Nordic cities will take advantage of seamless connections to Qatar Airways’ broad network of almost 100 locations in Australasia, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa via Doha. The partnership will give passengers of Qatar Airways access to new locations and connectivity options throughout Finnair’s Nordic network.
