Before your flight

Pre-order meals for kids

Make sure that your child gets the tastiest meal on board by pre-ordering it. Our pre-order selection for longer European flights includes a dedicated Kids’ meal with healthy and nutritious vegetables and familiar flavours for children. For intercontinental flights, we’re sure kids will love the new Burger Feast meal that you can pre-order to replace the first complimentary meal service. Our Seat & Meal Junior package is available on over 40 flights within Europe.

Practical tips for travelling with kids

Not sure what travel documents your child needs, how much baggage you can take or if you should bring your own infant seat onboard the flight? Not to worry: we have collected all the most important tips about travelling with children on a single page.

Guidance service for children travelling alone

If you cannot accompany your child onboard the flight, we can take care of him or her all the way from the departure airport to the destination airport. The guidance service for children travelling alone is available for 5–11-year-old children and 12–17-year-old adolescents travelling alone on Finnair flights.

Shop to surprise

Flying is often an exciting experience for children, but sitting still on your seat is not always easy. A pre-ordered gift that waits for your child on the seat might be a joyful surprise that keeps your child entertained throughout the whole flight. You’ll find a wide selection of beloved Finnish Moomin items and other gifts for children in Finnair Shop. You can also purchase many items for home delivery.

Please note that the Finnair Shop is currently only available in English, Finnish, Swedish, Japanese, Korean and Chinese.

In-flight experiences

Entertainment onboard

Time flies when watching a movie, playing games or listening to music. On our intercontinental flights, our extensive in-flight entertainment services are available for your family with options for all ages. Or have you already tried our new 3D aviation game? You can play it on all our Airbus flights via Nordic Sky portal free of charge.

Giveaways for kids

On our intercontinental flights departing from Helsinki, we want to give infants and children a gift from Finland to take with them. We always try to stock enough gifts but sometimes they may be subject to availability. We hope these gifts will bring joy both onboard the flight and at home!

Children’s mealtimes

When flying on our intercontinental flights, we do our best to accommodate children’s mealtimes separately. Whenever the situation permits, our cabin crew will come and ask your children’s meal choices and preferred timing in advance to make your travel as smooth and comfortable as possible.
