Finnair adding Premium Economy on all long-haul aircraft

Sunday, 11 Feb, 2022 0

Finnair has launched the airline’s new long-haul look with a brand-new Business Class and Premium Economy cabin.

The Finnish flag carrier unveiled the €200 million investment which covers all Finnair Airbus A350 and A330 long-haul aircraft.

The new cabins will be fitted over the next two years.

The routes will be announced on March 1, 2022, when the new Premium Economy cabin becomes available for customers to book.  

Topi Manner, Finnair CEO, said: "The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on our industry, but it has not changed our ambition to offer a modern premium experience as we continue to be the first choice for travellers connecting Europe and Asia."

Finnair is the launch customer for a brand-new concept in Business Class seats, developed with Collins Aerospace.

The unique fixed shell lounge space enables a wide variety of sitting and sleeping positions.

Ole Orvér, Finnair Chief Commercial Officer, said: "Space is today’s luxury, and we have put a lot of thought and attention to detail into creating the best Business Class seat for our customers."

Customers for all cabin classes board through a new entry area and includes a refreshment bar.

Finnish design house Marimekko has also designed a new collection of textiles including a duvet and pillows for Business Class, as well as a neck pillow and a woven blanket for Premium Economy.

Finnair’s new Premium Economy cabin is being installed on all its long-haul aircraft for the first time, offering the airline’s long-haul customers a new cabin choice.

"Premium leisure is a trend that has been significantly accelerated during the pandemic, so we are confident our new Premium Economy travel class will prove very popular with customers looking for an upgraded experience from Economy", added Ole Orvér.

Finnair has also invested in a refresh of its long-haul Economy Class, with new seats and larger Inflight Entertainment (IFE) screens for its A330 aircraft and three A350s.

Long-haul flights are key to Finnair’s strategy.

In summer 2022, Finnair plans to serve nearly 100 destinations in Europe, Asia and the US including new long-haul routes to Busan, in South Korea, Tokyo Haneda in Japan as well as Dallas and Seattle in the US.
