Finnair, Finland's most significant national flag carrier, is headquartered in Vantaa and has its primary hub at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. It is one of the world's oldest operating airlines, with an impeccable safety record. The airline is known for flying specialized routes between Europe and Asia. On November 1, 1923, Finnair began striving to be Asia's and Europe's leading airline. Finnair launched long-haul flights between Helsinki and New York via Copenhagen and Amsterdam. Finnair has introduced a web check-in option for consumers, in addition to low fares and online booking services. The geographical location of Finland, which connects the far east and Europe via the shortest path, is one of the most significant advantages for travelers.
Finnair is regarded for providing world-class service to its passengers. The in-flight personnel ensure that passengers have a pleasant flying experience. Passengers are treated to delectable cuisine, making flight travel a memorable experience. The menu features Finnish and Asian cuisine and some of the top wines in the area. Finnair is a member of the Oneworld Alliance, which means it has a global network of over 800 destinations.
Finnair is Finland's national carrier and a significant airline, with headquarters in Vantaa, Finland, on the grounds of Helsinki Airport, the country's central hub. Finnair and its subsidiaries dominate both domestic and international air transport in Finland. The government of Finland, which controls 55.8% of the company, is its largest stakeholder. The airline partnership, Oneworld, includes Finnair. It transported around 11.9 million passengers in 2017 to over 100 European, Asian, and North American destinations. The airline employed 5,918 people at the end of 2017.
Finnair is the world's sixth-oldest airline still in business. Finnair has continuously been rated as one of the safest airlines in the world, with no fatal or significant ship incidents since 1963.
Consul Bruno Lucander launched Finnair as Aero Ltd. in 1923. Lucander previously ran the Estonian airline Aeronaut's Finnish operations. He reached an arrangement with Junkers Flugzeugwerke AG in mid-1923 to provide aircraft and technical support in exchange for a 50% stake in the new airline. The company's charter was signed in Helsinki on September 12, 1923, and was registered in the commercial register. On March 20, 1924, a Junkers F.13 aircraft equipped with floats flew from Helsinki to Tallinn, Estonia, for the first time. Following the completion of the first airports in Finland, the seaplane service was terminated in 1936.
During World War II, the airline had a terrible time due to air raids on Helsinki and other Finnish cities. The Finnish Air Force confiscated half of the fleet, and it was claimed that half of the airline's passengers from other Finnish towns were children being evacuated to Sweden during the Winter War.
Because the Finnish government desired longer routes, it bought majority ownership in the airline in 1946 and resumed service to Europe in November 1947, first with the Douglas DC-3. Finnair became the airline's brand name. The firm purchased the Convair 440 twin-engined airliner, which was used on the company's lengthier journeys as far as London.
Finnair entered the age of aviation with the addition of Caravelles powered by Rolls-Royce Avon engines. Finnair bought a 27% stake in Kar-Air, a private Finnish airline. The company was renamed Finnair Oy and received its first American-built plane, a Douglas DC-8, in 1969. In 1969, the first transatlantic flight arrived in New York. Finnair was headquartered in Helsinki in the 1960s.
In 1975, Finnair got two DC-10-30 planes, its first wide-body aircraft. These first arrived on February 14, 1975, and began service between Helsinki and New York, then Helsinki and Las Palmas.
Finnaviation, a company founded in 1979 by Finnair, was established. Wihuri OY Finnwings was restructured and merged with Nordair OY to form this company. Domestic services were first scheduled in October 1979. Finnair owned 60 percent of the company in the early 1980s, and Finnaviation amalgamated with Finnair in the end.
Finnair has started flying to Seattle and Los Angeles. With a modified McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30ER, Finnair became the first airline to fly nonstop from Western Europe to Japan. Due to Soviet airspace regulations, aircraft had to proceed through Moscow or Anchorage until Finnair evaded these limitations by fleeing north from Helsinki, across the North Pole, and back south through the Bering Strait avoiding Soviet airspace. Due to a Soviet law on this route, Finnair was not required to make a roundabout, but the Japanese authorities insisted. The plane was equipped with additional fuel tanks, and the flight took 13 hours. Flights across Soviet airspace and with a stopover in Moscow took 13 hours, but those with a stopover in Anchorage took up to 16 hours, providing Finnair a competitive advantage. Air France and Japan Airlines were finally allowed to fly nonstop Paris-Tokyo flights over Soviet territory in 1986, placing Finnair at a disadvantage.
When it opened a Helsinki-Beijing service, Finnair became the first Western European carrier to fly nonstop from Europe to China. Finnair was the first customer of the McDonnell Douglas MD-11, delivered in September. OH-LGA flew from Helsinki to Tenerife in the Canary Islands, marking the MD-11's maiden commercial trip.
Finnair Plc is listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki Stock Exchange and has its registered office at Tietotie 9, Vantaa, in Helsinki. The State of Finland is the largest stakeholder, with no other company owning more than 5% of the stock.
Finnair's cargo operation is divided into two subsidiaries: Finnair Cargo Oy and Finnair Cargo Terminal Operations Oy. Both companies have offices at Helsinki Airport, and Finnair Freight operates its cargo operations with Finnair's fleet. Finnair has three cargo hubs at Helsinki airport, Brussels airport and London Heathrow airport. Finnair is a 40% shareholder in Nordic Regional Airlines. The airline operates a fleet of ATR 72-500 aircraft acquired from Finnair with its livery and Embraer E190 aircraft painted in Finnair colors. As 2011.
Finnair's new headquarters, the House of Travel, opened on the grounds of Helsinki Airport, which is a parking bay immediately next to its previous headquarters in Tietotie 11. HOTT was built from July 2011 to June 2013, on schedule. The former headquarters had been in operation since 1994 when it was replaced with one in Helsinki's city center.
In 2010, the corporation unveiled a new livery. The aircraft body's writing has been restyled and enlarged, the engines have been repainted in white, and the tail fin's color scheme has been reversed, favoring a white background with a blue stylized logo. The globe's contour was also omitted from the tail fin.
From its Helsinki headquarters, Finnair flies to nearly 130 destinations in over 40 countries across Asia, Europe, and North America. Unlike numerous other major European airlines, Finnair has focused on Asia as its primary long-haul market, with roughly 20 destinations. Finnair does, however, fly to eight North American destinations and many other countries. Nearly half of Finnair's destinations are seasonal. However, the airline has lately begun offering year-round service to those destinations. Finnair serves a total of ten domestic destinations. Some domestic flights are operated by the airline's affiliate Nordic Regional Airlines, either partially or entirely.
Finnair has no direct competition on any of its long-haul routes because it is the sole operator. China and Japan are the airline's two largest markets in Asia, although other countries such as South Korea, Thailand, and Singapore are also important. Finnair flew to Asia up to 97 times a week in the summer of 2018. In the future, the airline intends to expand its Asian network with new destinations and flights and investigate using narrow-body aircraft on some flights to smaller Asian cities. Finnair announced capacity increases in Asia, with flights to Hong Kong increasing from 10 to 14 per week and flights to Osaka rising from seven to ten per week. Tokyo and Hong Kong were the most popular long-haul routes during the summer of 2019. Finnair has five destinations in the United States, and the airline recently increased its service to the United States by adding new routes and frequency.
Finnair also launched a new route to Beijing Daxing in 2019 while maintaining service to Beijing Capital. The carrier intended to start serving Busan and Tokyo Haneda in March 2020; however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this was pushed back to the beginning of 2022.
Finnair has acquired its first Airbus narrow-body aircraft, the Airbus A321. The airline now has a fleet of up to 19 A321 aircraft. Finnair received the first Airbus A319 aircraft in 1999, and Finnair has received 11 A319s since then. However, three of them have retired. On domestic and European flights, Finnair uses Airbus A series aircraft. The winglet-equipped Airbus A321-231 is also used on some long-haul flights, such as those to Dubai. Nordic Regional Airlines operates the ATR 72-500 and Embraer 190 on domestic and European routes.
On March 27, 2009, Finnair acquired its first Airbus A330-300s. There are now eight of them in the airline's fleet. The airline began using the A330 in 2019. General Electric engines are used to power the A330s, and the planes are also used to fly to Brussels, London, and Málaga in Europe.
Finnair has confirmed its orders for 11 Airbus A350 aircraft, with eight options. Finnair reported in 2014 that it had finalized a contract for eight other Airbus A350 airliners beginning. Finnair has stated that the A350 aircraft will first be deployed on flights to Bangkok, Beijing, and Shanghai, with services to Hong Kong and Singapore in 2016. Finnair began flying the Airbus A350 to various destinations in April 2019. Finnair also flew A350s to New York on many occasions, making it the first European airline. Finnair occasionally employs the A350 for extra freight on the morning AY1331 flight from Helsinki to London–Heathrow.
Finnair aims to retire the Airbus A320 family and replace them with next-generation aircraft due to an aging narrow-body fleet. The airline expects to spend close to €4 billion to renew its fleet. Finnair announced at its Capital Markets Day in 2019 that it expects to expand its fleet from 83 to around 100 aircraft by 2025, with 70 percent narrow-body aircraft and 30 percent wide-body aircraft. Growth would account for one-third of the overall investment, while fleet replacement would account for two-thirds. According to Bloomberg, Finnair will replace the outdated planes with either the A320neo family or the Boeing 737 MAX new-generation planes. The airline has also stated that it is looking for suitable narrow-body aircraft for long-haul flights.
Due to the increasing demand for feeder traffic capacity, Finnair chose to improve the space economy of its present Airbus narrow-body aircraft. The investment is estimated to be about EUR 40 million, and it includes 22 narrow-body Airbus planes in Finnair's fleet. Five A321 planes are exempt from the cabin layout adjustment because they already have 209 seats as planned. In 2017, the cabin reconfiguration was expected to take two weeks per aircraft. Depending on the aircraft type, the reconfiguration adds 6 to 13 seats, boosting the passenger capacity of Finnair's Airbus narrow-body fleet by over 4% in terms of available seat kilometers. Finnair also intended to expand its narrow-body aircraft fleet, and Finnair leased eight Airbus A321 narrow-body airplanes from BOC Aviation as a first phase.
Finnair has occasionally experienced aircraft shortages, forcing them to rely on leased and wet-leased aircraft. Finnair, for example, stated that it would lease two Airbus A321 planes from Air Berlin for its European operations. These A321s flew from Helsinki to a variety of European destinations. Finnair has signed a lease agreement with CDB Aviation Lease Finance for two Airbus A321s. The first plane was supposed to be delivered to Finnair in the winter, and the second in the summer of 2018.
They purchased 11 Airbus A350 XWB planes, with plans to retire older Airbus A340 planes by the end of 2017 and replace them with newly designed A350 planes. The entire fleet of Airbus A340 aircraft has been withdrawn. From Tokyo to Helsinki, the last A340 flew. On December 3, 2014, Finnair confirmed orders for eight other A350 planes. Finnair received the first A350, making it the first airline in Europe to do so.
They had explored moving part of the A350-900 orders to the A350-1000 but elected to preserve the A350-900 orders. Finnair has announced intentions to enhance capacity by up to 13% by adding extra seats to some of its Airbus A350 planes. There are 32 Business Class seats, 42 Economy Comfort Class seats, and 262 Economy Class seats in the new seat configuration, for 336 seats. This second seat configuration was intended to be used on flights with lower business class demand, such as those to Bangkok, Beijing, and other countries, and trips to leisure locations. Still, it has also been employed on different popular routes.
Finnair has changed its mind about retiring two Airbus A330 planes from its fleet. Instead of retiring two A330s in 2017, its 2016 fleet plan now includes keeping its A330 fleet when its A350s arrive. The airline had intended to retire two A330s, but that was not the only adjustment. Each year, the long-haul fleet was to increase by one, and in 2020, it was expected to reach 22. Finnair has the option of reducing its wide-body fleet to 15 aircraft in 2019 and keeping it there until 2023. Finnair will be able to operate more aircraft due to the new A350 aircraft.
As part of a considerable investment to improve the customer experience, Finnair has unveiled its new roomy, long-haul appearance, including a brand-new Business Class and new Premium Economy cabin. The Finnish flag carrier announced the €200 million investment at a press conference in Helsinki.
Finnair's Airbus A350 and A330 long-haul aircraft are all getting new cabins. Over the next two years, the new cabins will be installed, including an entirely new Business Class, a brand-new Premium Economy cabin, and a refurbished Economy Class.
The whole Airbus fleet offers a business class. On long-haul flights, the seats have personal in-flight entertainment systems. All wide-body aircraft have Zodiac Cirrus III seats in Business Class. Each seat reclines to a 78-inch complete flatbed and offers direct aisle access. In 2020, Finnair will launch a new Premium Economy class, and both the Airbus A330 and Airbus A350 will include the new cabin class.
Finnair is the first consumer for a brand-new Business Travellers seat concept developed with Collins Aerospace, maximizing user space and mobility. Customers may make the space their own during a peaceful long-haul journey thanks to the unique fixed shell lounge space, which allows for a wide variety of sitting and sleeping postures.
Customers in all cabin classes board through a stunning new entry area with a refreshment bar, making a lasting first impression and providing additional service possibilities for Cabin Crew. The Business Class cabin refurbishment also includes new service concepts to improve the client experience.
Customers will choose from a variety of meals concentrating on the best of Nordic cuisine, which will be served on new chinaware designed particularly for Finnair by top Finnish designers Harri Koskinen and Iittala. Marimekko, a Finnish design house, has also created a new range of one-of-a-kind textiles to complement the warm and friendly onboard ambiance and provide exceptional customer comfort. A duvet and pillows are available in Business Class, while a neck pillow and woven blanket are available in Premium Economy.
Economy Comfort is Finnair's new premium economy offering, which will make its debut on long-haul flights. It will be more of an enhanced economy product than a separate class. Economic Comfort seats will have a more comfortable headrest, noise-canceling headphones, and a comfort kit in the first five rows of the economy. Finnair Plus and Oneworld elites and those with a full-fare coach ticket will receive complimentary seats, while all other customers will pay a fee.
For the first time, Finnair's new Premium Economy cabin is being fitted on all of the airline's long-haul aircraft, providing long-haul passengers with a comfortable and attractive new cabin option. Premium leisure is a trend that has advanced dramatically due to the epidemic. They are optimistic that their new Premium Economy travel class, with its comfy seats and extra room, would appeal to clients seeking an upgrade from Economy.
Finnair has also invested in a long-haul Economy Class revamp for its A330 and three A350 aircraft, with new seats and more extensive Inflight Entertainment (IFE) screens with a revised, more customer-friendly interface.
At Helsinki Airport, Finnair has three of its lounges. One is available in the Schengen Area to Finnair Business Class passengers, Finnair Plus Gold and Platinum members, and Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members. The other two are in the non-Schengen zone, and the Finnair Business Lounge has the same access criteria as the one in the Schengen zone, except that Japan Airlines Business Class passengers can use it as well. In the non-Schengen area, the new Finnair Platinum Wing lounge has opened. This lounge, which replaces the previous Premium Lounge, is only for Finnair Plus Platinum and OneWorld Emerald passengers. The Business Class Lounge is available to business class passengers and many others. A Finnish sauna is available in the non-Schengen lounges. Contract lounges cover the remaining foreign destinations.
Coffee, espresso, water, cream, and blueberry juice are all included on most European flights. Other beverages, including alcoholic drinks and food products, can be purchased. Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are available for purchase on domestic flights and shorter European journeys. Warm meals and complimentary drinks, including alcohol, are provided in business class. In economy class on most Intercontinental flights, there is a menu selection. Most Airbus aircraft have a dedicated snack bar available in intercontinental business class. The complimentary salad or sandwich was removed in November 2014, and complimentary beverages were confined to coffee and a few other drinks on European flights.
Except for the Embraer, all Finnair aircraft have LCD video monitors or personal entertainment systems. Exterior pictures, moving-map systems, and silent television programming are available on the Airbus A320 airplanes. All seats aboard Airbus A330 and A350 aircraft have an AVOD personal entertainment system with thousands of movies, TV shows, music albums, radio stations, and other options.

We ask that you arrive at the airport three hours before your trip to the United States. We've added extra travel document checks and made other changes to our airport services due to the pandemic. We recommend leaving spare time for them, even if you are flying within Finland.
Ensure you leave enough time to complete the necessary airport security checks and be at your gate on time. It's also a good idea to allow extra time in unforeseen circumstances, such as long lines at the luggage drop or security check. The check-in deadlines are in place to ensure that flights depart on time. Fifteen minutes before departure, gates close.

Ans. You can skip the security line and go straight to the departure gate. Airport monitors can be used to verify the departure gate.
You can receive a boarding pass from a self-service check-in kiosk or the Finnair check-in desk if you don't have one. Please print a baggage tag from a self-service check-in kiosk if you have checked luggage before heading to the Bag Drop counter. Self-service Bag Drops are available at different airports to help you get through the airport faster. Please proceed to the Finnair check-in desk if there are no self-service check-in kiosks at your departure airport. The agent will print your boarding pass and look after your luggage.
12. What is required to travel with a child?
Ans. Please consider the following factors to guarantee that you and your child enjoy a pleasant travel experience:
All Finnair long-haul flights have baby bassinets. For babies under the age of six months, bassinets are advised. Please reserve a seat appropriate for a cot/bassinet through Manage booking to use a baby bassinet. You can also book a seat by contacting us through our live chat service or a travel agency. Seats are not accessible. Our cabin crew will provide you with the infant bassinet and assist you in installing it when you board the plane.
One piece of baggage carrying a maximum of 23 kg is included in a child's baggage allowance. A foldable pushchair and a safety seat are also free to transport. Infants and children do not have baggage allowance when traveling with the Light ticket class, but a folding pushchair and safety seat may be transported for free. Checked baggage can be added separately for a charge if necessary. If space and safety requirements allow, safety seats may be brought into the cabin. Continue reading.
If the pushchair, including its wheels, which must be kept clean, fits within a carry-on bag's size and weight restrictions, it can be taken with you. In this situation, the pushchair counts as one piece of carry-on luggage, and you are only allowed to bring one small personal item (handbag or small laptop bag) into the cabin, which must be stored under the seat in front of you. For further information on sizes, read our carry-on luggage page. All other checked baggage, including children's pushchairs, is transported in the aircraft's hold. There are thin plastic bags available at the Helsinki airport check-in desk to protect your baby's pushchair.
Most airports have pushchairs available for borrowing to get from check-in to gate. Depending on your destination country, you may be asked to present a passport or other travel document for the youngster traveling with you. Milk and snacks for your infant are allowed past security and onboard. Original, unopened food and milk packaging are required. In the aircraft, there are no microwave ovens. When ordering your airline tickets or afterward through Manage booking, you can request a special children's meal for children over two. All of our intercontinental flights include meals, and the Sky Bistro, which takes the place of the complimentary cold snack service on European flights, offers a children's menu.
13. What is the ticket cost for infants?
Ans. The cost of an infant ticket is 10% of the adult ticket price. Onboard, an infant does not have a seat. Please get in touch with our customer service department if you would like to purchase a seat for your child. The ticket price is then calculated based on a child's ticket with a child discount. The child discount is 25% of the introductory rate, without fees and taxes on most of our ticket types. Children between the ages of 2 and 11 receive a discount, and the youngster must travel with an adult to qualify for the deal.
You must purchase an accompaniment service for unaccompanied children in addition to the airplane ticket if your youngster (5-11 years) will be traveling alone. Flights inside Finland cost 40 euros, flights within Europe cost 60 euros, while intercontinental flights cost 120 euros. The fees are for a single direction.
14. What is the procedure to book a baby basket?
Ans. All Finnair transcontinental flights provide baby baskets. To utilize a baby basket, please use the Select Your Seat feature to reserve a seat suited for a cot/bassinet. Seats are not accessible. You can also make a reservation through our Customer Service department. After you board the plane, our cabin crew will hand you the baby basket and assist you in installing it.
15. Are two babies allowed with one adult?
Ans. Yes, however, because an adult can only carry one newborn on their lap at a time, the other baby will require a child's ticket. A twin pram can be transported for free if its length does not exceed 158 cm (62 in) and its weight does not exceed 23 kg (50 lb).
16. What are the foods available during flight?
Ans. Depending on the flight length, you'll enjoy a complimentary supper or snack with beverages on all long-haul flights and in Business Class on short-haul flights. Each meal is meticulously prepared with Nordic flavors and a destination-inspired flair on our long-haul flights.
If you're flying Economy Class on one of our short-haul flights, you may choose from various seasonal, high-quality food and beverage selections that combine the best of Europe and Asia. In addition, depending on the length of the flight, our onboard menu of refreshments and snacks is available.
17. How to order a children's meal?
Ans. On long-haul flights or in Business class on flights within Europe and the Middle East, you can order a complimentary child lunch for children over two. You can pre-order a delightful child lunch when flying in economy class on lengthier European flights. You can order the lunch when you book your tickets before traveling through Manage booking or a travel agent.
Child meals are free if ordered at least 24 hours before departure. When departing from Helsinki, pre-order meals must be purchased at least 16 hours before departure and 36 hours before departure from other departure cities.
18. Does Finnair multi-city flights provide baby food?
Ans. We suggest bringing your baby food in your carry-on luggage. You can bring milk and snacks for your infant through security and onboard. Food and milk must be in their original, undamaged packaging. We keep a few jars of baby food in reserve on planned long-haul flights, but please bear in mind that supplies are limited.
19. Do Medical devices are allowed onboard?
Ans. Personal oxygen concentrators (POC) and apnea breathing equipment (CPAP) are typically permitted on board, but airline approval is always required. The CPAP machine must be small enough to fit in the carry-on luggage allowance.
To function correctly onboard, most CPAP devices require the installation of a medical inverter. Although not all aircraft types have an inverter, we can check availability 72 hours before departure. The inverter can be requested at no additional cost to the passenger for long-haul flights.
Because the onboard power source cannot be guaranteed, you must be prepared to function without your breathing apparatus if necessary. Please have enough backup batteries for battery-operated gadgets to cover at least 150 percent of the planned flight time.
20. How to get medical clearance?
Ans. The majority of persons with medical issues can travel without difficulty. Certain safeguards must be taken in some situations, and we may require a Medical Clearance to determine your eligibility to fly.
