Use points on Finnair award flights

Using points for Any Seat bookings or travel extras is not possible at the moment as we are improving the booking process. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Your Finnair Plus award points can fly you around the world, as you can use points to purchase award flights. Use your points to pay for Finnair flights or flights with our partner airlines. For Finnair flights, you can pay for the award flight using points only with a Classic award flight, or with a combination of points and money with an Any Seat reservation.

Finnair Classic award flights

Finnair award flights are a great way to make use of your award points. You can buy Finnair Classic award flights to Finnair flights (flight numbers marked with an AY code) that are operated by Finnair or Norra.

The price of the award flight in points depends on your destination, travel class and whether you purchase return or one-way flights. One checked baggage and seat reservation for a standard seat are included in the ticket. 

How to book a Finnair Classic award flight

  1. Choose Award flights from the booking engine on our front page.
