Whether trekking to Santa and his reindeer in the Finnish Lapland during a snowy winter, venturing to amble among the autumnal Ruska in the Turku Archipelago or simply seeking some sauna-hopping in Helsinki, it should be no surprise that the official airline of Santa Claus, Finnair, serves up that unique feeling of Nordic magic the moment you board your flight, no matter the time of year – and offers easy connections to major international cities including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo.
At the forefront of the Finnair experience is, like in much of the Nordics, fashion, with their stylish fleet of aeroplanes featuring interiors adorned with textiles and tableware created in coordination with iconic Finnish interior design houses like Marimekko and Iittala. The subtle touch transports passengers to the vibrant and trendy streets of Kallio before they even step foot in Helsinki. Travellers lucky enough to fly business class will enjoy a sustainably sourced, exclusive Marimekko kit that comes in eight print designs – including classic patterns such as Joonas, Pieni Melooni and Jenkka – and contains the likes of organic L:a Bruket cosmetics.
Complimenting Finnair’s chic aesthetic is the elegant dining service, which has a most unexpected feature. While the dining service delivers a taste of the New Nordic movement immediately to meal tray and highlights exquisite dishes concocted from Arctic super foods, the surprising standout is … the blueberry juice. Procured from wild blueberries throughout the Nordics, the intensely flavoured, antioxidant-rich beverage has become the airline’s signature dish, of sorts, so beloved by customers that it’s even sold in supermarkets across Finland.
Flying one of the most modern fleets in Europe, Finnair provides not only a contemporary, highly curated in-flight experience based around comfort, but, because the jets are new, they produce considerably fewer emissions than your standard aircraft. Combine all this together and the serene, Finnish ambience begins well before you arrive at your destination.
