Lauda adds daily flights between Vienna and Helsinki at the end of March 2020. At least in the beginning the route will be operated by Ryanair, which will be the first time Ryanair has scheduled traffic to Helsinki Airport.

They will also fly 2x weekly to Lappeenranta, the only privately owned airport in Finland with scheduled traffic.

Yle News 1.11.2019:

Aviation tax initiative heads to Parliament

More than 52,000 people have signed a citizens' initiative calling for an aviation tax, surpassing the 50,000 certified signatures needed to send it to MPs for consideration.

Any Finnish citizens aged 18 or over can sign or start such an initiative, which lapses if sufficient signatures are not collected within six months.

The flight tax initiative was launched on 2 May, so would have lapsed on Saturday. As of early October, the initiative had only collected around 7,000 names. By Wednesday, that was up to 25,000. As Thursday began, that had risen to just over 33,000. In its final spurt on Thursday, it gathered more than 17,000 signatories to break the 50,000 barrier around 11pm. Signatures can be collected either in paper form or via a secured online system.

[...]

The initiative calls for the fee to variable and based on "the climate impact of various types of flights". It does not propose any specific tax rate but points out that the flight fee in neighbouring Sweden ranges between six and 40 euros per passenger.

Sweden adopted an aviation tax last year, which was followed by a decline in flight passengers and rapid growth in train ridership.

Austria, Britain, France, Germany and Norway also levy some form of aviation tax. Supporters hope that the growing number of national fees will lead to an EU-wide scheme. If no EU deal is found, the Netherlands plans to introduce a 7.50 euro ticket tax for departing passengers from 2021.

I was surprised to learn that these days Finnair is flying cargo flights to Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing.

New York and Bangkok will join the list next week.

Is SAS currently flying any scheduled long-haul cargo flights?
