Although flights to Shanghai with A350 will start on 21/November as announced before, Finnair has been forced to adjust the schedule for starting A350 flights to Bangkok and to Beijing.
The reason? Delays in the expected delivery schedules of Finnair's first few A350 aircraft, i.e. the 2nd, 3rd and 4th aircraft.
As the MSN19 will be delivered in late-November and MSN20 & MSN22 will be delivered to Finnair in late-December and January (instead of previously planned late-November and December), Finnair has adjusted A350 flights to Bangkok start on 24/December, instead of the earlier announced 4/December.
In the same way, A350 flights to Beijing will start on 6/January, instead of the earlier announced 4/December.
Until these dates, these destinations are served with Airbus A330 aircraft and A340 aircraft.
