While exploring routes for my upcoming trip to Finland, I discovered that Finnair is the first European Airline to take delivery of the new Airbus A350 airplane. It is the most quiet, comfortable, and fuel-efficient large passenger airplane yet. Its not everyday people get to try a new plane, so I want to share how you can find flights.
The inaugural flight schedules for the respective routes are posted on Finnair’s website.
I explored routes that fly the new plane and found that HEL-BKK is the most interesting option for me. What this means is a very real possibility of a future round-the-world trip with both Scandinavia and Asia in one shot. You can follow Finnair on Twitter to find when the HEL-HKG flights will begin.
What is your experience flying relatively new planes? Do you like the new-plane smell?
