Finnair is supplementing complementary meal and snack service on European flights with optional, paid pre-order meals. On the menu there will be four hot meals plus one fresh salad to choose from.
The meals will be offered to Economy Class passengers on all European scheduled flights, including those operated by Finnair’s partner Flybe Finland, with the exception of Finnish domestic flights and service to Stockholm, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. Flight segments from Madrid to Helsinki are also excluded for operational reasons. The meals are unavailable in Business Class, as Business Class tickets already include an upgraded meal.
The meals cost EUR 10 if ordered in advance, or EUR 12 if bought on board. Only a very small selection of meals will be available for purchase on board, however, so customers are advised to order in advance to avoid disappointment. At present passengers can order the meals by logging into the My Booking section of the Finnair website, but in future customers will be able to place their order at the time of booking as well.
For passengers who do not choose to pre-order a meal, light meal or snack service in Economy Class on all European scheduled flights longer than two hours remains complementary and in effect. Also as before, on shorter flights customers can enjoy complimentary coffee, tea and juice and can buy selected items from the snack menu.
