Finnish design company Marimekko and airline Finnair have joined forces for a new design partnership that aims to enhance the air travel experience. Two of Finnair’s long-haul aircraft will feature livery based on Marimekko designs.  An Airbus A340 featuring the iconic Unikko floral print from 1964 is now operating between Helsinki and Finnair’s Asian destinations, and another aircraft will follow early next year.

A Marimekko for Finnair collection of textiles and tableware featuring the company’s classic patterns is also due to be launched. It has been designed to add a bright and fresh dimension to the onboard experience, while lightening the airline’s carbon footprint as well. Finnair’s CEO, Mika Vehviläinen, said:

Finnair has a strong design heritage, and this cooperation brings our design thinking to a new level. Our goal is to become a design airline, and bring our customers unique experiences for all five senses. Cooperation with Marimekko is an important step towards this target. Finnair aircraft will become roving ambassadors of timeless Finnish design and creativity, giving our customers a special experience when they fly with us.
