Finnair named Northern Europe’s best airline
Finnair has been named Northern Europe’s Best Airline at the World Airline Awards, for the sixth year running. Organised by Skytrax, the recognition is based on an independent survey of some 18 million travellers from more than 160 countries. At the same time, the oneworld alliance, to which Finnair belongs, was named Best Airline Alliance for the third straight time.
Finnair is the first European airline to receive the Airbus A350 XWB aircraft with a spacious, light cabin with award-winning Nordic design, on-board Wi-Fi and top of the range IFE system. Finnair is also investing into bringing WiFi connectivity to its entire Airbus fleet, with installations starting in 2016.
“This is a recognition for the excellent work done by our committed team in the air and on the ground to serve our customers as they connect between Europe and Asia with Finnair,” says Juha Järvinen, chief commercial officer at Finnair, and continues:
“We want to offer our customers a unique Nordic experience, and will continue to invest in further improving our product and service, with many upgrades in the pipeline already. We also look forward to starting our A350 operations this autumn, as the first European airline to do so. This will enable us to offer even better customer comfort and new services.”
