What's new?

Business Class upgrades made simple

You can now find all our Business Class upgrade options in one online service on finnair.com. In the service you will be able to check for upgrade availability and purchase your upgrade with money (credit or debit card), Finnair Plus points or upgrade benefits.

Business Class upgrades are also sold through the Finnair mobile app and our customer service. If there’s availability, you may also purchase an upgrade at the airport or even on board your flight.

Same price everywhere online

The price for upgrades paid with money can vary each day depending on availability, and you’ll find the same prices both on the new online service and the Finnair app.

When using Finnair Plus points or upgrade benefits, the point charge is always the same no matter when you redeem the upgrade.
