Simple Flying


Finnair has made a name for itself from comfortable connections between cities in Europe and Asia via its Helsinki hub. After almost 100 years of operations, the airline also recently commenced long-haul services out of Stockholm Arlanda Airport. A oneworld alliance member, it operates a near-all-Airbus fleet apart from a number of ATRs and Embraer regional jets serving its domestic routes. With over 100 destinations, the Finnish flag carrier transported a record number of 14.65 million passengers in 2019. (Featured image: Vincenzo Pace - Simple Flying)
