Upgrades made simple
How it works?
You can now find all our Business Class upgrade options in one online service on finnair.com. In the service you will be able to check for upgrade availability and purchase your upgrade with money (credit or debit card), Finnair Plus points or upgrade benefits.
Business Class upgrades are also sold through the Finnair mobile app and our customer service. If there’s availability, you may also purchase an upgrade at the airport.
Same price everywhere online
The price for upgrades paid with money can vary each day depending on availability, and you’ll find the same prices both on the new online service and the Finnair app.
When using Finnair Plus points or upgrade benefits, the point charge is always the same no matter when you redeem the upgrade.
When can I purchase a Business Class upgrade?
You can start purchasing Business Class upgrades 59 days before your flight’s departure time at the earliest, and the online service is open until 37 hours before departure.
For Finnair Plus members, the service opens already 360 days prior to departure.
You can check upgrade availability for your flight on our website. The availability is limited for each flight, depending on seat availability.
