This Finnair sale is running until 31 December 2019 (or sold out), and covers travel dates between 14 January and 15 June 2020. You must use flights AY101 & AY102 between Hong Kong and Helsinki.

You can book this deal on the Finnair website. Here’s an example of an itinerary that we found:

Finnair Business Campaign fare from Hong Kong to London

One free stopover in Helsinki is permitted for up to 130 hours, which is just over 5 days. If you’d like a Finland stopover in both directions, the second stopover will cost an extra $186.

Beware that some flights between Helsinki and London are operated by Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, which feature Finnair’s European Business Class product.

Finnair is a member of the Oneworld alliance and these fares book into “I” class, so you can earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points and status credits at Business rates. For a round-trip booking from Hong Kong to London via Helsinki in Finnair Business class, you would earn 360 Qantas status credits and at least 15,000 Qantas points.

If you live in Australia, you can take advantage of these cheap Business class flights to Europe by positioning to/from Asia on a separate ticket.
