Doha – Helsinki

8:15AM – 2:50PM Sunday, Monday, Thursday & Friday

1:35AM – 8:10AM Tuesday, Wednesday & Saturday

Helsinki – Doha

5:45PM – 12:05AM Sunday, Monday, Thursday & Friday

10:55AM – 5:15PM Tuesday, Wednesday & Saturday


This is the first time any of the ME3 (Emirates, Etihad & Qatar) have started flying to Helsinki. Qatar Airways already announced way back that they would open Helsinki, but apparently this was delayed by year or two.

This makes connections between Helsinki and cities in the Middle East, India and Africa that Qatar Airways serves easier to reach.

It is interesting how the airline will do in Helsinki. I guess that we can only hope for as good fares as Norwegians have recently get used to from Oslo.
