Finnair will bring textiles and tableware designed by Finnish design house Marimekko on board its aircraft on 15 May 2013. To celebrate, a Finnair Airbus 330 was unveiled on 7 May with Marimekko livery on the fuselage.
The plane will fly from Finnair’s Helsinki hub to the airline’s 13 Asian destinations plus New York City. It joins a sister aircraft with Marimekko livery, which went into service in October 2012.
“With our Marimekko cooperation, we want to bring timeless yet modern Finnish design to the travel experience of Finnair customers,” says Anssi Komulainen, Senior Vice President, Customer Service.
“From mid-May onwards, our Business Class customers will enjoy their in-flight meals from tableware tailor-made for Finnair by Marimekko, and Marimekko napkins, blankets, pillows, and head rest covers will be introduced during summer.”
The same Marimekko designs will be featured on the paper cups, headrest covers, blankets, and pillows used in Economy Class.
