Landing in the thickest fog is indeed possible, however. This is facilitated by airport procedures and the aircraft’s automatic flight control system – namely the autopilot.
As a new member of the Executive Board, I will be responsible for ensuring that Finnair’s flights are operated safely, economically and punctually.
Interpreting body language and reading thoughts are clearly best left to the professionals. Despite my great enthusiasm and interest in the subject, I still obtain the most reliable information from words.

I’m quite aware of who I am – the feedback I’ve received so far has been quite frank, and even though it has mainly dealt with my outer assets, my identity is beginning to take shape.
Aircraft are a work of art put together using many engineering elements. The number of technologies in use is phenomenal. These technologies have to communicate smoothly with each other and often in challenging conditions. For example, the typical temperature for a scheduled flight cruising height is about -50 degrees Celsius, while the temperature at the
Finland is tucked away on the top edge of Europe – so why would anyone want to fly through it to get to Asia? Even today, many people perceive the Earth as flat. The greatest difficulty in explaining Finnair’s strategy is still presented by a man who lived 500 years ago, Gerardus Mercator, who projected

Next week, on Thursday 27 August, the first phase of a new 150 million euro terminal complex will be opened at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport to serve long-haul route and non-Schengen customers. This is the first step towards a big change that will lies ahead in the autumn. Next Thursday, a customer arriving at the terminal will
