At some time, all of us have surely admired the lights of aircraft blinking in the sky. Some of us have also wondered, perhaps, what the different lights mean.
If I were now to write an essay entitled “My Finland”, it would be a eulogy with no end. No “Oops!”. In this essay, I would tell about my fellow Finns.
Finnair Catering is not only Finland’s biggest and most international kitchen, but also a huge logistics company that handles a massive amount of raw materials, equipment and sales goods.
We have readers! Now I am absolutely sure of it… despite the fact that my mother doesn’t have a computer.
Once upon a time flying was just a dream. In 1903 the dream was finally realized, when the Wright brothers succeeded in making the first controlled human flight – lasting only 12 seconds and covering a distance of 40 meters.
As leisure trips to distant destinations take off during the winter schedule, you will often be transported to another financial culture. In many Finnair destinations haggling is still an essential part of the culture. A skilled haggler knows the rules and is able to strike the right note necessary to make a good deal.
In my previous blogs, I covered the topics of instrument flying, locating an airport with radio waves, the autopilot and airport equipment. All these play a role when we make a landing at an airport in foggy weather. This is how we do it.
Choosing an airline with a new fleet is an eco-smart decision, because each new generation of aircraft produces around 20 per cent less emissions than its predecessor.
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.
