FINNAIR CARGO DURING THE COVID-19 PERIOD

 

 

Finnair Cargo is the freighter arm of Finnair, the Finnish flagship carrier. It normally operates belly cargo only but during the corona time it has started cargo only operations as well. The FBCC member Finnair is famous for its reliable and fast connections between Europe and Asia.

During COVID-19 Finnair has been operating from Asia several flights to ensure critical deliveries needed because of COVID 19, such as protective gear, COVID-19 blood samples and medical equipment across Europe. Finnair Cargo is well equipped to scale upwards and to provide  similar services to both public and private partners across Europe. Finnair is an expert in handling medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, and was the first airline to receive the IATA CEIV pharma certificate in 2015.

  • Finnair has the fastest cargo connection from Asia to most of Europe – the company can serve most of European capitals in less than 12 hours from Asian airports. Allowing its services to become highly cost efficient. For example, we can deliver 4+ million protective masks with just one A350 aircraft.
  • Finnair has an extensive network in Asia, e.g. Finnair is able to provide daily cargo services to and from Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Hong Kong and several other Asian cities.
  • Through the highly sophisticated Finnair Cargo COOL terminal, combining latest automatization technology, supported by cutting edge IT infrastructure and a modern fleet Finnair Cargo is well equipped to provide high-quality on-time performance in a safe and secure manner. Our references include Finnish National Security of Supply, Estonian National Security of Supply, Red Cross, several European health care companies both public and private.

Finnair is committed to assist different organizations in their efforts to fight against COVID-19 by flying critical cargo to and from Asia to meet its customers’ demands.
