Finnair gets festive with Christmas menu and Santa Claus livery

1 Dec 2014 by BusinessTraveller

Finnair has unveiled a Santa Claus-themed livery in the lead up to the festive season, and has launched a Christmas menu for long-haul business class passengers.

The carrier has been the Official Airline of Santa Claus since 1983, and this year is celebrating with two Airbus A321 aircraft painted with a Christmas livery.

The airline also flies Santa on a world tour over the Christmas period, as a partner of the Santa Claus Foundation, and has launched a new video directed by Finnish writer and director Jalmari Helander, featuring Santa Claus and the big secret of Christmas.

Long-haul business class passengers travelling from Helsinki will also be able to join in the festive fun, with a special Christmas menu being served until December 30.

Food and beverage options include rainbow trout gravlax, poached duck and roasted cod, as well as mulled wine and gingerbread cookies.
