Finnair continues to Miami with wetleased A330
Finnair has extended the lease of an Airbus 330 aircraft and crew from Iberia for its thrice weekly Miami FL (USA) service until 1 May 2017. The Finnish carrier had previously announced Iberia would operate the Miami route from 10 - 31 January 2017.
As of 1 February, the flights will be operated as a damp lease, with crew from both Iberia and Finnair. The lease is to accommodate pilot training that is necessary to secure the airline's growing operations for the summer 2017 season and beyond.
Due to the arrival of additional A350 aircraft in 2017, Finnair is currently training its A330 pilots for A350 operations. Pilot training will continue during the spring of 2017. (ah)
