Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Monday, 12 May 2014

Finnair is set to open a new Premium Lounge directly adjacent to the Finnair Lounge near Gate 36 in the non-Schengen area of Helsinki Airport.

The Premium Lounge, designed by the Helsinki firm dSign Vertti Kivi & Co, complements the original Finnair Lounge and will be ready for Platinum and Gold Finnair Plus members and other oneworld top-tier customers from 1 July 2014.

The 407-square-meter space features different areas for working and relaxation and comfortably seats up to 122 guests.

Complimentary meals and drinks, including wines and spirits, are plated on Marimekko tableware or served in Iittala Ultima Thule glasses first designed for Finnair in 1968 by Tapio Wirkkala. Carefully selected furniture in the lounge includes legendary Tulip and Womb chairs created by Eero Saarinen.

As part of the overall upgrade in lounge services in Helsinki, customers of both the Premium Lounge and the adjoining original Lounge will also enjoy access to completely new private shower suites, as well as a Finnish sauna.

Towels and forest berry-based shampoos, shower gels and lotions from Finland are provided.

Our aim was to create a high-quality, even emotional experience for Finnairs demanding clients, said designer Vertti Kivi. Different zones for work, refreshment, silence or bathing are unified with a light Scandinavian design touch, creating a space that clients wont forget.

The Premium Lounge is open to Finnair Plus Gold and Platinum members and their guests only, as well as to frequent flyer cardholders with equivalent status at a fellow oneworld airline, including Finnairs joint business partners American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia and Japan Airlines.

Other Business Class passengers are welcome to the original Lounge.

This new and exclusive lounge takes Finnairs long association with Finnish design to a new level, said Markku Remes, Finnairs Manager of Lounge and VIP Services. We will be delighted to welcome our most loyal and regular customers into this special space before their flight.
