Finnair is offering “two for the price of one” city breaks via its hub in Helsinki in an extension to its StopOver offer.

Flights from London, Manchester and Edinburgh to eastern European cities such as Tallin, Stockholm and St Petersburg are included.

Other Finnish cities, such as Kittilä, are also included in the list of destinations.

Andrew Fish, Finnair general manager UK, Ireland and Benelux, said: “Flying with Finnair from Heathrow, Manchester or Edinburgh to destinations within Europe offers the perfect opportunity to experience a two-centre city break for the price of one, by enjoying a free stopover in Helsinki.

“Our StopOver offer proved such a success with customers flying to Finnair’s 19 destinations in Asia that we’re thrilled to be able to extend this to our customers seeking to combine a short-haul European break with a visit to fantastic Finland.”

The centre of Helsinki is around half an hour from Helsinki Airport, and the airline offers flights from London five times a day and from Edinburgh twice a day.

Tickets start from £205 return.
