Finnair has been named, for the eighth consecutive year by Skytrax, as Northern Europe’s Best Airline at the World Airline Awards at the Paris Air Show. 

Finnair General Manager, Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, Geoff Stone, said “we are thrilled with this recognition once more with Skytrax as Finnair continues to invest significantly in our growing A350 fleet and customer experience from the time of booking through to check in and on board service”.

The Skytrax results are based on an independent survey of more than 19 million passengers from 105 countries that took place between August 2016 and May 2017 covering 325 airlines.

“We are proud that Finnair has once again been recognised by Skytrax and passengers from across the world as the Best Airline in Northern Europe. We are committed to providing the very best experience to our passengers throughout their journey and we constantly develop our service both on the ground and in the air while staying true to our renowned Nordic hospitality”, said Finnair Senior Vice President, Customer Service, Piia Karhu.

“Finnair will continue to enhance our great personal customer service by innovating the travel experience by using the latest digital solutions to enhance the customer experience. We now have our Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal installed on every long haul aircraft and the use of our mobile app has continued to grow,” said Mr Karhu.

Continuing the digital trend, in 2017 Finnair was the first airline in the world to launch Alipay onboard, in addition, successful face recognition trials were conducted at Helsinki Airport check-in with Finnair frequent fliers.

“Digital transformation is one of our core strategic targets, however, we continue to develop all areas of the customer experience such as our well-received collaboration with top chefs in our long-haul Business Class cabins and our enhanced lounge experience in conjunction with new partnerships”, said Mr Karhu.
