Finnair Offers Limited-Time Menu Created by Finnish Gourmet Chefs

Helsinki-based airline Finnair, as part of its 90th anniversary celebrations, recently announced a limited-time, signature gourmet menu created by Finnish chefs Pekka Terävä and Tomi Björck. Available this fall on business class, long-haul flights (including those from Chicago, Miami, and New York), the menus will offer classic Finnish cuisine with a modern twist and include complimentary prize-winning wines.

“In-flight dining is an important part of a distinctive travel experience," said Maarit Keränen, head of service concept at Finnair. "Both Pekka and Tomi have a fresh style that is distinct from the mainstream. Pekka Terävä’s classic Nordic flavors are a natural fit with Finnair's identity; while Tomi Björck’s Finnish take on Asian cuisine supports our Eastward outlook. I believe that the new meals will delight Finnair's customers and raise the international profile of Finnish culinary culture."
