Finnair – one of the oldest and the most modern

Aero Oy – later Finnair – was established on 1st November, 1923, which makes it one of the world’s oldest operating airlines in the world. Nowadays it operates one of the most modern and most eco-efficient fleets in Europe.

Finnair aims to become the airline of choice for quality and environmentally conscious air travellers in intercontinental travel in the Northern Hemisphere. The growth strategy is based on increasing demand in the traffic between Europe and Asia.

The core of our services is based on Airbus and Embraer aircraft, but we are capable of supporting ATR, and Boeing 757 customers as well.

The Finnair Flight Academy’s predecessor Finnair Flight Training Center, was officially established in 1950 when training started with our first flight training devise. Since then the academy expanded to become capable of providing all flight crew training related services and bringing together also cabin crew training, technical staff training, and other areas of training to support airline operations.

Finnair Flight academy services are based on the heritage of quality from Finnair flight operations, which entails nearly a century long tradition of providing high-quality services to our customers.
