Intercontinental flights – Business Class

As a Business Class passenger on one of our intercontinental flights, you’ll receive two high quality meals during your journey. Your main meal will comprise an appetizer or soup, main course (three alternatives), cheese and dessert. You can also choose from a wide selection of breads, and you’ll find that our carefully selected beverages and award-winning wines complement the menu perfectly. Throughout your flight, we’ll also serve coffee, as well as an extensive range of teas.

If you wish, you can also order an express meal service, either when booking your tickets or by requesting it from the crew at the beginning of your flight. Our speedy meals comprise an appetizer, soup, cheese platter, and coffee or tea.

We also serve a variety of snacks and sweets during the flight. The Business Class sections on many of our Airbus A340-300 and A330-300 aircraft contain a separate snack bar, located near the main entrance – here, you can help yourself to light snacks and drinks.

Main course alternatives

The three main courses on our long-haul flights change regularly. Our chefs couple the crisp, fresh tastes of Finnish nature with Mediterranean culinary traditions. Our main courses include succulent options for meat lovers, fish cooked to perfection and tasty vegetarian dinners.

You can choose your favourite main meal option in advance conveniently online. Please note that orders must be placed latest 24 hours before your departure.

Award-winning meals

The food on our intercontinental flights has won many prestigious awards. The menu is complemented with carefully chosen wines and a quality selection of drinks.

Nordic cuisine

Nordic cuisine emphasises fresh, crisp tastes and local produce. We’ve taken this as our inspiration and use berries from the Finnish forests, wild mushrooms, game and fresh water fish as the focal point of our meals.

Mediterranean cuisine

In any self-respecting Mediterranean kitchen, you’ll find plenty of olive oil, different local cheeses, wine, pasta and colourful fresh ingredients. Our Mediterranean style meals combine rustic tastes with healthy ingredients and a dash of originality.
