Finnair Round the World Now Including South America
Finnair’s presence in the round the world airfare market continues to grow with exciting new route additions. Finnair fly between North America and Europe from NYC and Miami, with some seasonal services from Chicago. Yet they continue to come up with even more diverse routes to reach their North American gateways. Their latest improvement will allow you to route via Santiago on Qantas with a connecting flight on American Airlines or LAN to NYC or Miami. This places Finnair as the only discount round the world airfare on sale covering both of the Americas. An example route on this round the world fare is as follows…
Sydney – Santiago [Qantas]
Santiago – Miami [AA]
Miami – Helsinki [Finnair]
Optional extension to European destination, can fly in to one place and out of another. Just add taxes.
Helsinki – Singapore [Finnair]
Singapore – Sydney [Qantas]
That can be achieved for just $2194 including taxes in economy or $7986 in business class [even less via Bangkok in business class]. Furthermore, instead of flying from Santiago to NYC or Miami, you can elect to use the internal flight to fly to Lima, Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires and then make your own way to NYC or Miami. This is another great option for the backpacker market who are moving between continents overland and this also makes Finnair the only discount round the world fare that has Lima on its’ route paths.
Finnair continue to be a popular choice for Qantas frequent flyer members looking to accrue points and status credits with oneworld carriers. The above example can earn 165 status credits in discount economy and 660 status credits in business class but expanding on from Helsinki or including Australian domestic sectors will earn even more status credits.
