The Finnish airline Finnair is turning 100 years this year. A lovely illustration of Snorkmaiden and Moomintroll is featured on the livery of two Finnair aircraft to celebrate the centenary.
Finnair, one of the world’s oldest airlines, turns 100 years in November, and celebrates it in a Moominous way. Two of its Airbus A350 aircraft are now adorned with a picture of Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden. The Moomin aircraft will fly to various long-haul destinations in Finnair’s network, like Dallas, Tokyo and Bangkok.
“Finnair’s mission is to enrich life by bridging the world. This is also the theme of our centenary. Moomins represent friendship, community and going on adventures together, so they are a great fit for our values,” says Finnair’s CEO Topi Manner.
The Moomins were first seen on Finnair aircraft in the mid-1990s. After that, Finnair has also had many Moomin campaigns, such as one where families travelling with infants have received a Moominous gift on board.
