This week saw the announcement of a new, smart and sophisticated design flourish to Finnair’s business and economy cabins. Supporting the new fabrics and amenity kit designs in business class, is a new service concept, allowing passengers to eat on demand.
Inspired by pure essentials, Nordic design and meaningful encounters, Finnair’s new service concept will offer a wider range of dining and wine options just as if you were dining in a restaurant.
“More than ever, our Business Class customers enjoy the opportunity to customize their travel and dining experience,” says Piia Karhu, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience at Finnair. “Our objective is to create an unspoken bond with our guests, every time they fly. We have dedicated cabin crew personnel for business class passengers, providing a more individual service, with the aim of setting new standards for comfort and overall well-being onboard Finnair flights.
The service offering also includes Kahvikutsut, a traditional coffee and dessert course featuring no less than seven different sweet treats including Carelian pies, cinnamon buns, coffee cake and traditional Finnish chocolates, served between the two main meal services.
Finnair’s new business class service concept will commence as of February 7, 2018, on flights to Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, with a gradual roll-out of the remaining long-haul destinations during the spring and summer.

“With Nordic-inspired design throughout the entire cabin, our aim is for our guests to be treated to a travel experience that sooths the senses and clears the mind,” says David Kondo, Head of Cabin Interior Development at Finnair. “Our new seat textiles and comfort amenities have a fresh and modern aesthetic that is inspired by Nordic homes and landscapes. ”The new interior elements are rolled out to Finnair’s Airbus A350 aircraft in phases during 2018.
