Juneyao becomes first Chinese airline to fly to Iceland

Shanghai, China - Juneyao Airlines becomes the first Chinese airline to add Iceland to its route network.

From the summer season of 2020, the Shanghai-based carrier will fly to Keflavik International Airport with a Boeing 787-9. The flights will have a stopover in Helsinki in both directions.

Juneyao Airlines is constantly expanding its European route network. Last week, the company announced that it would add Manchester (three times a week) and Dublin (twice a week) to its network. Both cities will also be flown via Helsinki.

Including the route to Iceland, Juneyao will fly from Helsinki to the second European destination every day of the week from the 2020 summer timetable.

These routes will also be served by the Boeing 787-9s. Juneyao has 6 Dreamliners in its fleet. The airline expects to take delivery of four more 787-9 currently on order.
