Finnair Plus tends to run discount upgrade promotions few times a year and has just launched their latest one.
Finnair Plus members can save 20% on upgrade awards on select routes if applied by September 9, 2019.
You can access Finnair Plus here.
Here’s the upgrade chart:
Here are the eligible routes:
- 8,000 points: London, Manchester, Paris and Rome. Other routes: 10,000 points. Business Class may not be available on all European routes.
- 40,000 points: Bangkok, Beijing (PKX), Chicago, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Nagoya, Nanjing, Osaka and Xi’an. Other routes: 50,000 points.
This is one of the most useful ways to burn Finnair Plus points and 8,000 point upgrade to Tel Aviv or Dubai are very good value, although these are served by short-hail aircraft (Dubai sometimes gets a wide-body).
