Juneyao Airlines Announces Shanghai to Dublin, Manchester, & Reykjavik: All Via Helsinki

Shanghai-based Juneyao Airlines, a Star Alliance connecting partner, has announced new fifth freedom flights from Helsinki, Finland.

The airline will operate a Shanghai Pudong (PVG) to Helsinki (HEL) flight. From there, Juneyao will fly to three European destinations: Dublin, Manchester, and Reykjavik.

All three of these routes will be fifth-freedom flights, meaning you can solely fly on Juneyao between Helsinki and Dublin/Manchester/Reykjavik without flying to/from Shanghai.

  • All three routes are operated with the Boeing 787-9.
  • Dublin will be flown twice a week and begins March 29, 2020
  • Manchester will be flown three times a week and begins March 30
  • Reykavik will be flown twice a week and begins March 31.

Awesome expansion by the airline. In addition to this, Juneyao previously announced it will launch Shanghai to Athens in June 2020.

What are your thoughts on these new routes? Are you interested in flying them?



Very cool!! Never thought Iceland would be one!

I really like Juneyao’s livery, and hope that they’re successful with these routes. I imagine they’ll have quite a bit of competition, so best of luck to them.

Nice! Such a stunning livery and it is a great deal seeing more Chinese visitors in Ireland. Similar to what Dublin received earlier;

  • Hainan Airlines used to operate between Dublin and Shenzhen direct or via Edinburgh. Flights have been operating normally until became suspended until mid-2020 for the Winter Season.

Juneyao’s inaugural DUB, MAN, and KEF flights have been pushed back into late April, likely due to the coronavirus.
