Finnair adds new ‘Business Light’ ticket type

Finnair has added a ‘Business Light’ ticket type to its range of options in business class.

The Finnish carrier said the Business Light ticket is suited for leisure travellers who want to travel in business class with just carry-on baggage.

They can pay more to add lounge access or onboard internet access.

The carrier has also renewed its existing ticket types – Light, Classic and Flex – all of which are available on business and economy short-haul routes, as well as most long-haul flights.

The Classic ticket, which offers one checked bag, remains Finnair’s most popular option. However, from Tuesday (June 15) customers opting for the Classic now have additional flexibility of fee-free changes when making adjustments to their travel date.

They only need to pay the possible difference between the original and new ticket.

The Flex ticket is the fully flexible and refundable ticket option, and customers need to cover the possible difference between the old and new fare when changing their ticket.

Flex ticket customers booking from June 15 onwards will not have access to airport priority services.

Ole Orvér, Finnair chief commercial officer, said: “There is an increasing need to personalise the travel experience, and our new ticket type offers business class customers fantastic additional choice.

“We want to provide our customers flights which work for them, and so we will be introducing even more choice and personalisation in the future as we restart our routes and prepare to ramp up our operations.”
