Finnair enhances its A350 sky shopping experience with new Ivana Helsinki collaboration
Finnair will heighten the passenger shopping experience onboard its A350 aircrafts by opening a Ivana Helsinki clothing shop in its Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal. Ivana Helsinki is an independent art, fashion & cinema brand, delicately mending Slavic melancholy and pure Scandinavian moods in its clothes for women. The company is based in Helsinki, Finland and was founded in 1998.
The Ivana Helsinki collection is directly accessible, without any additional fees, on any handheld devices or laptops connected to the Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal.
“Ivana Helsinki is the second sky shop we open in our acclaimed Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal,” says Jarkko Konttinen, Vice President, Inflight Experience, Finnair. “We began with the Makia Clothing cooperation in February and this new launch with Ivana Helsinki shows our commitment in enhancing our product selection. We will continue to further develop the shopping experience for our customers and we are committed in introducing new services to enhance the overall customer experience onboard.”
“We are delighted to be Finnair’s partner in this new era of shopping,” says Pirjo Suhonen, founder of Ivana Helsinki. “This is another way to bring enjoyment and excitement to flying. With this new collaboration, the best of Scandinavian design will be made available to Finnair’s customers and we are happy to be a part of this selection.”
All passengers on A350 flights can use the Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal with their own devices free of charge in both travelling classes. Through the portal, passengers have access to finnair.com, news services and Finnair services such as destination information, customer care and pre-order shopping. Passengers can also use Nordic Sky to order taxis via the Cabforce Taxi Service to the destination airport and book destination services such as trips, dinner cruises and concert tickets with Viator Destination Services.
Finnair currently operates four A350 aircraft and WiFi access is available for sale to economy class customers. Finnair will install WiFi access for the rest of its Airbus fleet, with installations starting later this year.
