Airports: 4 (HEL, OUL, KUO, AMS) + 10 (HAJ, TXL, CAN, LHR, DOH, CDG, LCY, SNN, JFK, MIA)
Carriers: 1 (AY) + 3 (BA, QR, AA)
Segments: 8 + 18
Countries: 1 + 6
Longest: HEL-AMS (CAN-HEL)
Shortest: HEL-KUO
Northernmost: OUL
Southernmost: AMS (CAN)
Westernmost: AMS (MIA)
Easternmost: KUO (CAN)

How about others?

Very sad indeed. Only a few trips this year:
  • BSL-LHR-ABZ return on BA
  • ZRH-HEL-TLL return on AY
  • ZRH-FRA-TLL return on LH
  • BSL-LHR-NQY-LHR-GVA on BA
  • ZRH-PRG return on LX
  • ZRH-ZTH return on WK
  • GVA-ZRH-ARN return on LX and LLA-ARN on SK

Thats it.

Canceled trips include HNL, EDI, PDX, several HEL and LHR...

This year no longhauls at all, just days before my first booked flight to BKK the whole thing came to a full stop, and I m sitting on vouchers worth a couple of thousand Euros. This was the first year for over 28 years with no trip to BKK and no trip to the US - feels strange.

SFX - LON
TXL-ATH-JNX
TXL-ATH-JNX
TXL-HEL-TLL
TXL-HEL-TLL
TXL-ATH-JNX

regarding upcoming flights we will see what is possible.

I'm refusing to wrap up the year already. There are still plenty of flights to fly, such as Finnair's last flight to TXL and the next day out from "new" BER. Also I'm sure I can squeeze something for December....

But the year so far looks like this:
72 segments
63688 km

Top routes:
HEL↔OUL 16
HEL↔LHR 10
HEL↔VAA 10
TLL↔HEL 7
HEL↔AMS 4
HEL↔RVN 4
HEL↔VIE 4
HEL↔KTT 3


I did manage to squeeze in a long-haul this year before bats hit the fan but otherwise the amount of domestic and short haul segments is mind blowing!

One trip to highlight was the Airveteran DC-3 round trip from Helsinki (not Vantaa) to Kauhava (back to Vantaa due to weather) to see an air show!

Is it possible to fly TXL and back next day from BER?
one answer is of course by transferring from TXL to BER via BNE but my question was about corona restriction.

2020 has literally been my saddest travelling year since I was 2 years old... Only one trip, and not even to Europe:

4 Airports, 2 airlines:
BKK-NRT-SAN-ORD-NRT-BKK in J on JL with the domestic on AA.

And that was in February, just before Thailand shut its borders too

At least I can say the majority of my flying was in F...
One single trip (CPH-FRA-TUN-DOH-MEL-HBA R/T).

This year I've spent more time handling involuntary changes, chargebacks and adapting to entry restrictions than in air.

Now, wrap up this crap.

This is an option too!
