The Mexico Tourism Board announced the first direct nonstop flight from Helsinki to Puerto Vallarta between November 19, 2017 and March 18, 2018.

The upcoming weekly service follows almost two years of close cooperation and partnership between Finnair and the Mexico Tourism Board. This falls in line with their new overall global vision and strategy to increase connectivity, expand into new markets and diversify their tourism product offerings to draw new travellers to Mexico and help continue to propel the country's growth in the tourism sector.

The weekly flight will run every Sunday and is the first time in history that there will be a scheduled non-charter from the Nordic countries to Mexico during the region's busiest travel season. It will greatly increase connectivity from the region to the Mexican Pacific coast with over 5,000 seats as part of the annual service.

"We are excited about this new service from the Nordics to Mexico. The region represents an important growth opportunity that plays to our tourism strategy of driving and strengthening air connectivity through expanding existing partnerships and targeting new gateway destinations," said Lourdes Berho, CEO of the Mexico Tourism Board.

The flight will be operated with airline's new Airbus A350, which has 251 seats in economy and 46 in business class. Finnair is the first European airline to fly the aircraft that substantially raises the bar for both passenger comfort and environmental performance.
