Finnair business class meals set to be sold in more supermarkets

FINLAND’S main national airline, Finnair, has been selling its business class meals in a supermarket near Helsinki airport, and following its success, they’re set to be sold in more.

The experiment proved a big hit among customers as over 1,600 meals were sold within days of the launch.

For the takeaway meals, priced at €12.90, customers get the chance to live the life of a business class flier with a choice between: beef with teriyaki-radish sauce served with grilled spring onion and rice, or smoked arctic char with chantarelle risotto, on offer.

As it battles to limit job losses at its catering division in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Finnair has decided to sell the meals in more supermarkets.

Marika Nieminen, the head of Finnair Kitchen, who has said that around 700 jobs could be cut by March, exclaimed: “There are redundancies and layoffs going on already at Finnair and we are trying our best to find new innovative ways.”

Nieminen also confirmed plans that the company was looking to introduce new dishes for the supermarkets; including reindeer meat from Finnish Lapland and Japanese-style pork shoulder.
