All new flights of the Finnish carrier are part of Finnair's long-term strategic partnership with fellow oneworld alliance member Qatar Airways.
Flights will be operated on an all-new long-haul Airbus A330, equipped with Air Lounge business class, modern Premium Economy Class and a redesigned Economy class.
