Delta Airlines has agreed a code-share/block space agreement with Finnair, following its decision to discontinue its New York (JFK)-Helsinki service on 29 October. Under the agreement, Delta will purchase seats on Finnair's MD-11 service to New York. The deal gives Finnair access to Delta and Delta Connection destinations beyond New York. The two carriers are to discuss other areas of co-operation, including scheduling opportunities, frequent-flyer programmes and passenger handling.
