Finnair issued this statement and photos:
In conjunction with its annual Press Day, Finnair has today announced the launch of a new business class service concept and new Marimekko design elements for both cabin classes, celebrating its Nordic roots and offering customers a unique Nordic customer experience.
Personal service with dedicated crew
Inspired by pure essentials, Nordic design and meaningful encounters, Finnair’s new service concept will offer a wider range of dining and wine options, served on-demand and at a customer’s preferred time, just as if you were in a restaurant.
As part of its new concept, Finnair is also introducing the classic Finnish tradition “Kahvikutsut” – a coffee serving with seven different treats – for long-haul flights departing Asia in the morning. This exclusive coffee service allows customers to spend quality time enjoying traditional Finnish treats like Carelian pies, cinnamon buns, coffee cake and traditional Finnish chocolates between the two meal services.
Finnair’s new business class service concept will commence as of February 7, 2018, on flights to Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, with a gradual roll-out of the remaining long-haul destinations during the spring and summer.
Renewed textiles and Marimekko patterns for both classes
Finnair will also bring the feeling of the Nordics to the cabin interior of Finnair A350 aircraft with new cabin textiles and amenities, including new simple and stylish seat covers, and pillows, blankets and chinaware with prints from the iconic Finnish design house Marimekko.
