Finnair's Platinum Wing at Helsinki airport

Finnair has reopened its top-tier Platinum Wing lounge at Helsinki airport after a two-year closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The lounge is available to top tier members of the Finnair Plus and Oneworld loyalty programmes, and its location in the non-Schengen zone of the airport means it is open to those passengers heading to London or the carrier’s Far East and US destinations.

The Nordic-inspired facility offers table service a la carte dining, dedicated zones for working and relaxing, and an exclusive sauna and cooling area with natural mood lighting.

Current dining options include reindeer burgers, grilled pike perch, warm goat cheese salad, and chicken and vegetable pappardelle pasta.

Gluten free and plant-based dishes are also available, including the “beyond burger”, and guests can sample a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails including Finnair’s signature “Northern Blush” which is also served inflight.

The reopening follows the recent unveiling Finnair’s new business and premium economy seating, and the subsequent launch of new long-haul premium dining concepts.

Business Traveller reviewed the new business class seat earlier this year, on an A330 flight between Heathrow and Helsinki.

Commenting on the news David Kondo, Finnair’s head of airport customer experience, said:

“We know our customers love the Platinum Wing, so we are very excited to re-open and welcome back guests with great personal service and exciting new dining options.

“The sleek design, taking cues from the best of Nordic furniture design tradition and Nordic nature, is used throughout the lounge and is followed through onboard on newly designed long-haul Business Class, brand new Premium Economy cabin and refreshed Economy seats.”
