Keeping in theme with Rohan’s latest post: New airline liveries: the good, the bad and the ugly, today I bring you pictures from FinnAir newest painted A330. A blue-forest livery based on the Marimekko print Metsänväki (“forest dwellers”) that emblems the corporation between Finnair and Marimekko.
The New Marimekko A330
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 classic prints are featured in Economy Class paper cups, headrest covers, fleece blankets and pillows.”
The Metsänväki print by Kristina Isola is a strong statement about the Finnish spirit and the forest-inspired energy that makes Finns tick. The print combines the majesty and fairytale-like magic of the Finnish forest. This makes it an ideal greeting from Finland, carried on the blue and white wings of Finnair around the world,” says
New Economy and Business themed Flatware
Finnair is stepping up their game and going “native,” bringing customers the best designs and looks from local Finnish companies and artist. The new look is very distinctive and mixes FinnAir’s current livery with a special themed livery.
