Finnair to join Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme

Accessibility is one of Finnair’s social sustainability objectives and we aim to provide equal access to our products and services for persons with reduced mobility or disabilities. 

“We understand that living with a hidden disability, such as autism, anxiety, vision or hearing impairments, chronic pain or dementia, can make travel more challenging. That is why we have now joined The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme,” says Finnair’s Sustainability Manager Maiju Mattila. “This is part of our efforts to continuously improve the physical and digital accessibility of our products and services.”  

With the lanyards, which are bright green in colour and decorated with an easily recognisable sunflower design, you share to staff that you may: 

  • Need more time to process information or more time to prepare themselves at check-in, boarding or disembarking.  
  • Need clearer verbal instructions, as it can be difficult to understand facial expressions and/or body language.  
  • Need help reading departure boards or signs.  
  • Benefit from more information on what to expect before, during and after their flight.
