Finnair to Stop Distributing Newspapers on Long-Haul Flights; Switches to Digital

Finnair is making available a wide selection of international newspapers in digital format for customers on its long-haul flights.

As of today, over 50 international newspapers can be read in .pdf format through the Nordic Sky portal that is available onboard Finnairís A330 and A350 aircraft.

 Customers can use the portal with their own devices, and do not need to purchase a Wi-Fi connection to access the newspapers.

ďWe are happy to be able to offer a wide selection of digital newspapers to our international customers,Ē said Tiina Vesterinen, Director for Customer Experience Development at Finnair. ďWith digital papers, customers always get the latest copy, regardless of where their flight is departing from, and we never run out of stock.Ē

At the same time, Finnair will discontinue distributing paper versions of newspapers on its long-haul flights. Paper issues will remain on European flights for the time being, until Finnairís European fleet is also equipped with Wi-Fi later this year.

At this stage, digital newspapers are provided free of charge in both business and economy class of Finnairís long-haul flights, as well as on the Helsinki-London-Helsinki flight flown with an A350 aircraft.
