Finnair celebrates 90 since its inception (video)
In 2013, Finnair celebrates 90 years since its inception. The history of the Finnish company begins in 1923, the year in which Bruno Lucander founded Aero Airways. On 12 September 1923 documents were made, and on 11 December 1923 entered the trade register.
The first commercial flight was operated on 20 in March 1924 and bound Helsinki with Tallinn, Estonia. The flight was operated with a F.13 Junkers equipped with floats. The last seaplane was operated in 1936, then the aerodromes appeared and the operations were moved to land. Only on 1953, the airline changes its name from Aero Airways to Finnair.
After 90 years of activity, Finnair operates 44 aircraft to 63 destinations and is in the Oneworld alliance. The fleet consists of Airbus aircraft. 4 Boeing 757-200 are used for charter flights, but they will also be replaced by Airbus A321 starting this year.
Happy Birthday, Finnair!
