filial finesa de Flybe.
Finnair has been building its Helsinki hub (which has been revamped recently) over the years. It has a strong focus on longhaul connections between Europe and Asia, and it was already flying to Beijing and Japan over the polar route in 1988. At the time it also had an extensive domestic network and two domestic airlines, Karair and Finnaviation. Most of this domestic routes are now operated by the Finn branch of Flybe. Onboard service on domestic flights was not free, which was rather unusuarl for an European flag carrier back then.
Los vuelos de larga distancia se operaban con DC-10. Hoy se realizan con A330 y A340, pero en su momento fue uno de los pocos operadores del MD-11.
Longhaul flight were operated with the DC-10. The A330 and A340 are currently used, but Finnair was one of the few MD-11 operators at some time.
