Behind the scenes: A330 modifications
This spring has been unusual for Finnair Cargo with Covid-19 impacting all sides of business. As the passenger traffic nearly stopped for a few months, it initiated a challenge for us at the cargo side: how can we keep our business going?
New Finnair Cargo director Mikko Tainio has one big target in mind
In August this year, the leadership of Finnair Cargo passed over to Mikko Tainio, former head of Finnair Kitchen. A long-serving employee and executive of Finnair, he brings considerable experience and a proven track record to air cargo. Mikko shares some of his views and ambitions about what the future holds.
