Please make sure to pre-select the special meal at least 24 hours before your flight. If you are travelling in Business Class and you have other special dietary needs because of health reasons or severe food allergies you can order a customised "Other special meal (SPML)" at the latest 72 hours before departure via our customer service.

On our Finnair operated long-haul flights (to/from Asia, North America and the Middle East), special meals are available in all travel classes (Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class). If you have special dietary requirements, you can pre-select your meal from our special diet options, and we will prepare it in advance for you to enjoy on board. Please note that the selection is wider for our Business Class customers.
On our short-haul flights (within Europe), special meals are only available in Business Class.
If you are travelling in Economy Class on our short-haul flight, you can either purchase your meal from our onboard food and beverages menu which also includes meals suitable for different dietary needs, or pre-order from the available selection of hot meals, salads and sandwiches via the Finnair app or during online check-in depending on availability.
