Finnair is celebrating 90 years of flying this year

Finnair (Helsinki) will be celebrating 90 years of flying this year. As part of the year-long celebration the company has issued this statement and video:

Finnair has been making aviation history since it was founded by Bruno Lucander in 1923. This is the story of the resourceful and resilient early days of commercial air travel and how Bruno and his team operated in Helsinki’s wintery weather conditions.

Finnair pilots also share their thoughts and explain how the same can-do attitude is being passed on from older to younger generations of pilots.

This video is part of a series celebrating and documenting Finnair’s 90 years long journey. Enjoy!
