Finnair adds shoe brand to shopping portal

By Rick Lundstromi

Finnair is opening up the shopping experience on its A350s with a selection of shoes by Minna Parikka on Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal. Minna Parikka is the third Finnish fashion label on Finnair's Nordic Sky shopping portal

The Helsinki-based designer Minna Parikka is renowned for her fun and bold shoe designs, and the iconic bunny-eared shoes and other bold styles are a favorite among celebrities. Currently, Minna Parikka's designs are sold in 25 countries globally in some of the best fashion retailers, including Selfridges, Harrods, Liberty London, Luisa Via Roma, Harvey Nichols and Isetan.

“We are delighted to add the Minna Parikka shoe shop to our Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal, and bring these fun and bold designs to our A350 customers," stated Jarkko Konttinen, Vice President, Inflight Experience for Finnair, in yesterday’s announcement.

The Minna Parikka shop is directly accessible, without any additional fees, on any handheld device or laptop connected to the Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal, which is available on all Finnair A350 aircraft.

Passengers on A350 flights can use the Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal with their own devices free of charge in both classes. Through the portal, customers have access to, news services and Finnair services such as destination information, customer care and pre-order shopping, as well as third party shopping services. Customers can order taxis via the Cabforce Taxi Service to the destination airport and book destination services such as trips, dinner cruises and concert tickets with Viator Destination Services.

The Minna Parikka shop will be available inside the Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal in June, and it is the third Finnish fashion brand available through the portal, alongside Makia and the Ivana Helsinki Collection.

Finnair currently operates five A350s on its routes between Helsinki and Asia.
