Finnair, the United Nations children’s organization UNICEF and Amadeus, a leading technology partner for the global travel industry, have joined forces to benefit the world’s most unprivileged children.

Passengers now have the opportunity to make a donation to UNICEF and support education for Asian children when booking their flights on the Finnair web site ‒ available in 37 different country editions and 14 languages. The option will become available as of today and donations will be possible in sums of one, five or ten euros.

Donated sums are directed to UNICEF’s Schools for Asia campaign which supports education for the most vulnerable children in 11 Asian countries.

“On the anniversary of the 20th cooperation year, Finnair and UNICEF together with Amadeus, will launch a digital fundraising collection. We’ve traditionally made the collection in-flight, but now passengers can donate as they book their flights at finnair.com. We hope that passengers will back our aim of providing a better future for many Asian children,” says Pekka Vauramo, CEO of Finnair. “Even very small sums can make a big difference, and every donation is significant to those who benefit.”

”Finnair and the Finnish Committee for UNICEF have been raising funds for children together for twenty years. We’re extremely pleased to include this new mode of cooperation in our partnership, and we warmly welcome on board our new technology partner Amadeus,” says Marja-Riitta Ketola, the Executive Director for Finnish Committee for UNICEF.

“This partnership with Finnair underpins the global CSR agreement signed with UNICEF through which Amadeus provides the necessary technology through a community platform for online donations. As a long standing travel industry partner for Amadeus, Finnair shares our vision that CSR must be a continued priority for companies wishing to be at the forefront of their respective sectors,” comments Luis Maroto, President & CEO of Amadeus.
