Finnair relaunches retro flight in the original Silver Bird theme

From Finnair blog:
Since 1923, when consul Bruno Lucander founded an upstart Finnish airline called Aero, Finnair’s approach to customers has always had a personal touch. Lucander himself sold tickets, helped passengers with luggage, and even helped pilots moor the seaborne Junkers aircraft.

By the 1950s, Aero had changed its name to Finnair while management had a little more help in the air. The airline’s state-of-the-art Silver Bird Convair aircraft, the first with a pressurized cabin, took passenger comfort to new heights. The original Convair cabins had leather armchairs in two rows, tasty meals were eaten at tables and the airline even offered passengers the use of an electric Philishave razor.

This year Finnair celebrates 88 years of quality service and peace of mind in air travel with selected retro flights in the original Silver Bird theme. This is the retro flight to Hamburg on Finland’s Independce Day, December 6, 2011. Enjoy!
