HELSINKI - Finnair will re-start passenger flights from the UK and Ireland to Finland as of 25 January 2021, following the decision by the Finnish traffic authority, Traficom, to allow passenger flights from these countries.

In line with the recommendation by the Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare, Finnair will also from 28 January onwards require that passengers present a certificate of a negative Covid-19 test result, or a certificate of a previous Covid-19 infection if they travel on any Finnair flight to Finland.

"This requirement does not apply to customers transferring at Helsinki Airport for their international connecting flights," the airline said.

"This requirement complements our other comprehensive measures both onboard and at airports to ensure safe travel during the pandemic”, says Jaakko Schildt, Chief Operating Officer, Finnair. "This is also in line with the increasing trend of countries requiring a negative test result for entry."

The new test certificate requirement by Finnair does not change the procedures by the local health authorities upon arrival in Finland. All passengers arriving at Helsinki Airport from abroad are directed to Covid-19 testing.
