It is understood that the Jinan-Helsinki route opened on April 8 is also considered as a milestone of the business expansion of Tibet airlines. The intercontinental flight route is scheduled on every Monday and Thursday. 

As the flight route connecting China and Finland running by a domestic air company, Airbus A330 wide-body airliner will be used. The flight cabin is equipped with the most advanced EX3 AVOD entertainment system. The spacious space and safer airborne equipment will bring a safer and more comfortable experience for a long-range flight.

The situation that passengers in Jinan area had to transit through other cities and that it took more than ten hours to arrive Finland will be changed with the opening of the route, which will shorten the flight duration time between the two places to less than ten hours.
