Global to profit from Finnair's Indian expansion

Finnair's decision to quadruple its flights to India has been greeted enthusiastically by its cargo GSSA, Global Aviation Group.
Since Finnair commenced direct services from Delhi in October 2006, Global has claimed it could fill as much space as Finnair could give it.
Starting mid-May, Finnair will add four more flights per week from Delhi. At the same time, the aircraft serving the route will upgrade from MD-11 to A340, increasing capacity from 15 to 25 tonnes. Furthermore, Finnair will introduce five non-stop flights per week from Mumbai in June.
“We will be able to continue our focus on transshipment traffic for the entire Finnair system over a much wider area of India,” said Prabodh Tipnis, Global Aviation’s executive director, strategic planning & business development.
