The round-trip direct flight service is carried by B787 wide-body aircraft each day, linking Shanghai in east China with the capital of the Nordic country Finland.
Juneyao Air and Finnair have code-share cooperation on both the Shanghai-Helsinki intercontinental route and their domestic routes respectively in China and Finland.
Headquartered in Shanghai, Juneyao Air is a private Chinese airline. It operates a total of more than 140 domestic and international air routes.
