Accessibility of Finnair.com

Conformance status 

Welcome to the accessibility statement for Finnair.com. We aim to make our services more accessible for everyone and are working continuously towards improvement. Our design and development process for new features always takes accessibility as a starting point. We are continually improving the digital user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standards. The accessibility statement of Finnair.com is regularly updated. 

This statement describes the conformance of Finnair.com according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) that define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities.
