Entertainment and working on board
Newspapers and magazines
On our European flights we offer a selection of Finnish and foreign-language newspapers and magazines to all Business Class passengers. On longer European flights with both Economy and Business Class, Economy Class passengers can purchase a copy of Ilta-Sanomat or International Herald Tribune with 3 euros. On intercontinental flights newspapers are free of charge for both Economy and Business Class passengers. You’ll also find your personal copy of our in-flight magazine, Blue Wings, in your seat pocket – the magazine contains articles in English and is published ten times a year.
Personal entertainment system
Every seat on our Airbus A330-300 and Airbus A340-300 aircraft is equipped with an entertainment system and video screen for your personal use. This is the case in both Economy Class and Business Class.
On the majority of these planes, the personal entertainment system includes a satellite phone, 34 films, 16 games, 100 TV shows, 24 music channels, 60 albums – you can even create your own playlists – and an electricity socket. You can use the power socket to charge your laptop computer or your own music player – no adaptor is required.
You can listen to music, films and TV shows using headphones – on scheduled flights, headphones are free of charge; on charter flights (AY1000 series), there is an entertainment fee which includes headphone rental (on Boeing 757 aircraft, €5 per person including return flight; on Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft, €8 per person per flight).
The films we show on board are intended to appeal to a wide audience. Our selection changes every month. We also show films from the country you’re flying to, as well as short programmes and TV series.
Working and communications
The seats on our Airbus A330-300 aircraft and most of our A340-300 aircraft are equipped with a telephone and an electricity socket that does not require an adaptor. Our spacious Business Class seats are perfect for relaxing or working, with lots of legroom and a table that’s just right for your laptop.
On these aircraft, you can use the satellite phone in your seat to send text messages and short e-mails to networks on the ground, or call other passengers travelling on the same flight free of charge. Replies sent from the ground can be received on the aircraft. Each message costs 2 USD.
Airshow route map system
Our Airbus and Boeing aircraft are equipped with an Airshow system that displays the progress of your flight on a map. At various times during the flight, the system also provides other information, such as flight duration, estimated arrival time, outside temperature and altitude. When you land at Helsinki Airport, the system will also let you know which gates any connecting flights are departing from.
Entertainment for children
On all our intercontinental and charter flights we distribute toys and other entertainment items to children at the beginning of the flight. All these items are child safe, of high quality and suitable for use on board. The entertainment materials your child will receive vary depending on the duration of the flight and the age of your child.
We ensure that all films shown on our charter flights are suitable for families and children. Our film selection changes three times a year. We also show children’s cartoons.
