Finnair will offer its passengers totally new onboard shopping experience in A350 aircrafts by opening Makia clothing shop in Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal. Makia is Helsinki, Finland, based clothing company founded in 2001 specialized in classical, durable clothing for men and women.
During the flights Makia Spring/Summer 2016 collection is directly accessible, without any additional fees, with any handheld device or laptop connected to Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal.
Finnair’s cooperation with Makia is an example of the future of onboard shopping.
“Our acclaimed Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal offers a unique way to our customers to shop Makia clothes while on board our A350 aircraft. We're happy to introduce a top Finnish brand to our international customers. Makia's fresh and timeless clothing design suits well to Finnair brand identity,” said Finnair Vice-President, Product, Jarkko Konttinen.
Makia is excited to showcase and offer its new collection to existing and new world travellers in a Nordic design environment equal to its values. Finnair is a perfect partner for Makia with its forward-thinking mentality towards future air travel and its possibilities.
"With this exciting partnership with Finnair, we are able to introduce our clothes to a whole new group of customers in a relaxed hassle free environment, onboard the new Finnair A350s” said Makia Founder, Joni Malmi.
All passengers in 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. Passenger can also use Nordic Sky to order taxi via Cabforce Taxi Service to the destination airport and book destination services (e.g. trips, dinner cruises, concert tickets) with Viator Destination Services.
Finnair will continue to develop the Nordic Sky portal and introduce new services to enhance the customer experience on board, says Jarkko Konttinen.
Finnair develops its Wi-Fi portal in cooperation with the Finnish tech company Reaktor.
Finnair offers Wi-Fi on board its A350 aircraft, and currently has three Airbus A350 aircraft in operation. Finnair will also install Wi-Fi to the rest of its Airbus fleet, with installations starting in 2016.
