China awards Finnair as best European airline

Travel professionals in China choose Finnair – again – at TTG China Travel Awards.

Travel professionals in China have selected Finnair as the ‘best European airline’ for the third year in a row at the TTG China Travel Awards.

TTG China has been awarding the best companies active in the travel industry in the country including airlines, hotels and resorts, serviced residences and travel services since 2008, all of which is chosen by travel industry professionals.

Finnair currently connects seven cities in China – Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Xi’an, Guangzhou, Nanjing and Hong Kong – to over 100 destinations in Europe via its Helsinki hub.

“China is a key market for Finnair and we are committed to offering more choices and localised services for our Chinese customers,” said Juha Järvinen, chief commercial officer at Finnair, on receiving the award.

“It is a great honour to receive this prestigious award and I would like to thank all our customers and partners for the recognition and support.”

First in Europe
Finnair was the first airline in Europe to open direct flights to Beijing in 1988, and this year the Finnish flag carrier celebrates the 30th anniversary of serving the Chinese market.
