Five reasons Finnair's long-haul Business Class is the ultimate way to travel
Our enhanced Business Class cabin, rolling out across our entire long-haul fleet by summer 2024, is a true game changer. With an incredible seat, gorgeous Nordic design and food inspired by our roots as well as our destinations, it’s set to be the ultimate way to travel between Europe, the USA and Asia. Here are five reasons why you should book a ticket now and get set to take to the skies.
AirLounge seat that maximises your comfort
It’s the first thing you’ll notice when you board. Our new AirLounge seat is a spectacular piece of Nordic furniture, designed in collaboration with Collins Aerospace. The result is like nothing else in the air – a scooped, fix shell seat that doesn’t recline, but rather offers a number of ways to sit, whether cross legged while reading, upright when working or kicking back with your feet up while enjoying the best our updated in-flight entertainment system has to offer. And you can, of course, lie flat and get some sleep as we fly you to your destination.
A stunning menu
Nordic and Asian influences are a key in designing the Business Class menu, so you can expect the very best ingredients. We serve the delicious main meal after take-off and a lighter option just ahead of arrival. The main meal comes with two starters, a main course with three options, cheese, and dessert, matched with award-winning wines and other beverages. When you are travelling from Helsinki, you can pre-select your preferred main course and ensure your choice on board.
Nordic design touches
Bringing together the best Finland has to offer is what sets Finnair’s new Business Class apart. As well as a comfy seat that taps into Nordic furniture design and a menu inspired by the delicious ingredients for which our homeland is famous, there are design touches throughout the cabin that give it a truly Finnish feel. Iconic brand Marimekko has crafted the textiles, with vintage designs by Maija Isola. A new Business Class welcoming entrance area has also been built with Nordic heritage in mind.
Meanwhile, the tableware on board has been created by award-winning Finnish designer Harri Koskinen on behalf of Iittala. His Kuulas range of ceramics and glass makes the cabin feel homely and showcases the work of our brilliant chefs. Koskinen and his team worked closely with the designers at Finnair and developed round plates and glasses, with the aim of making something beautiful and less like the average rectangular items that are often found on tray tables. Using ceramics, glass, wood and steel, Koskinen says there was no room for ‘fake options’. You’ll notice the authenticity as soon as you are served at your seat.
New look in-flight entertainment
Making sure you’re entertained while relaxing in your AirLounge seat is a vital part of what we do. The in-flight entertainment system has been redesigned, with a new 18-inch display ensuring you’ll be fully immersed in the latest movies and TV shows we have on offer. What’s more, the new, darker tones of the intuitive user interface are more relaxing and easier on the eye, ideal for those who are searching for something to watch during the night. With USB-C connectivity and PC power, plus a flexible table set up, those who want to work are also well catered for.
