Dubai: €826 Finnair Business Class from Northern Europe (€989 with Luggage & Lounge Access)

finnair business class

Oneworld member Finnair sells discounted business class tickets for their winter service to Dubai. Nonstop flights from Helsinki are available at €969 between November 2022 and March 2023. Flight from other Northern European cities like Oslo or Gothenborg are even cheaper, but require a change of planes in the Finnish capital.

The quoted price is Finnair’s new business class light fare. It does not include checked bags, priority services, or lounge access. You’d have to select the business class classic fare for this, adding roughly €160 to the price.


These tickets are not refundable. Finnair’s rebooking policies are quite restrictive and only allow for the rebooking fee to be waived under certain conditions. You’d still have to pay the fare difference if you opt to change dates, which can easily double the price of the flight. Their policy ends on May 31, 2022.

You can buy premium tickets for less than €1,000 with departure from:

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
