By Rick Lundstrom


This year, two of Finnair’s A321 Sharklet aircraft take to the skies in Christmas livery. The aircraft have been flying to Finnair’s European destinations, as well as
Executive Chef Pekka Terävä other destinations such as Dubai.

Also on Finnair flights is a Christmas menu by Chef Pekka Terävä. The Christmas menu is served in Business Class on long-haul flights from Helsinki between November 26 and December 30. Christmas starters are rainbow trout gravlax, with poached duck and roasted cod as the entrée choices. Mulled wine and gingerbread cookies are also served.

Finnair has also launched a new video directed by Finnish writer and director Jalmari Helander featuring Santa Claus and the big secret of Christmas.

As a partner of the Santa Claus Foundation, Finnair’s blue and white wings fly the Santa livery to China, Japan and Korea, along with several European destinations.

Finnair has also increased its flights to Lapland in the early part of the winter travel season, particularly from Helsinki to Kittilä, Ivalo and Rovaniemi. Flights from those cities and Kuusamo have been scheduled to offer passengers even more convenient connections from Lapland via Helsinki to Europe and Asia.

“Santa Claus is a tremendously important element of Finland’s image in Asia as well as Europe, and Finnair is pleased to support this as the Official Airline of Santa Claus. Additional flights to Lapland give Finnish and international passengers the opportunity to experience Finnish Lapland as a Christmassy and wintry destination,” says Jarkko Konttinen, Vice President, Marketing & Product at Finnair in today’s annoucement.
