As you can't fly directly from Houston, TX (IAH-George Bush Intercontinental) to Helsinki (HEL-Vantaa) at the moment, a flight with just one stop is the next best thing. American Airlines, British Airways and Finnair are popular airlines that service this route.
The fastest possible flight time is 11 hours and 14 minutes, so take some precautions to help avoid jet lag on your Houston to Helsinki journey. Make sure you wander around the cabin, have a nap and drink plenty of water.
