Customer Service Plan (United States)
Lowest Fare Available
Customers making their bookings with Finnair via our website, our Customer Care Center or at our airport ticket office will be offered the lowest available fare for the time, date and class of service requested. All flight bookings will include service and other fees in addition to the fare.
Keeping Customers Informed
Finnair will do its best to provide customers at the airport and onboard an affected aircraft with timely and frequent updates regarding known delays, cancellations, and diversions, and will strive to provide the best available information concerning the duration of delays. It is also Finnair's policy to inform customers in advance of any possible irregularities with text messages at the mobile phone number provided in the reservation record.
For flights to and from the U.S., we will provide timely updates, within 30 minutes of becoming aware of a cancellation, delay or diversion, through the flight status pages of our website, Finnair's telephone reservations line, and any airport flight displays in U.S. airports that are under our control.
In case of a flight delay beyond two hours we will offer appropriate assistance and refreshments, provided that local conditions allow for such assistance to be delivered. The assistance may not be provided if doing so would further delay departure.
When cancellations or major delays are experienced Finnair will attempt to reroute its customers on the next available connection. If the delay or cancellation was caused by events within our control and we are not able to transport you to your final destination on the expected arrival day, we will provide reasonable overnight accommodation, subject to availability.
Meeting Customers' Needs
Finnair's top priority is the safety and well-being of its customers, and we are focused on having all our flights arrive and depart on schedule. On very rare occasions unforeseen events may cause a lengthy onboard delay either prior to take off or after landing. We will take all reasonable measures to ensure passengers are kept up to date with the latest information available, and for significant onboard delays, provide snack refreshments, lavatory facilities, and access to basic medical assistance.
