Finnair’s global search for independent advisors has come to a close with the appointment of four Quality Hunters selected from over 5,200 applications from 89 countries submitted over a one-month period.

The four winning Quality Hunters are Christina Lund Sorensen, Ella Marshall, Warren Singh-Bartlett and Wolfgang Wagner. Their work of assessing flights, airports and destinations now begins as they depart on itineraries which will cover destinations in Europe, Asia and the US over the next two months.

In addition to reporting their findings to Finnair as its independent advisors, the Quality Hunters will be sharing their thoughts and experiences with the public through their personal blogs on the Rethink Quality website at finnair.com. Readers who comment on the blogs or vote for the Top Quality Hunter at the end of the two-month period will gain the chance to win intercontinental flights for two between Europe and Asia with Finnair.
