Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 2 February 2011

Finnair Group's Senior Vice President Public Affairs and Corporate Communications Christer Haglund is to leave the airline to join another company in April.

Mr. Haglund has served in his post and as a member of Finnair's Executive Board and Board of Management since 2000.

"Christer Haglund has piloted Finnair's demanding communications through an eventful decade. The company's field of operations touches Finnish society widely and also, to an increasing degree, international stakeholders. Haglund has implemented a systematic and open communications line in relation to domestic and international media and other parties," said Finnair's President & CEO Mika Vehvilinen.

During the last decade, Finnair's Asian traffic has grown many times over. The focus of Finnair's communications has moved from the domestic to the international market.

"Haglund has created new operating practices to enhance Finnair's international visibility. As the company's customer base has internationalised, improving Finnair's recognition in the large Asian and European markets has created as excellent basis for implementing our strategy. I thank Christer for his contribution to Finnair and wish him every success in his new responsibilities," Vehvilinen added.

The search for a new Senior Vice President Public Affairs and Corporate Communications is currently under way.
