How did kylteris end up in Vienna for one night?

On Wednesday 14.10.2015 a group of excited kylteris stood in the departure hall of Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. We had been offered a huge privilege by Finnair to participate in one of the new and famous Airbus A350 –airplane’s test flights, Vienna as our destination. How did we end up there?

Last spring Finnair and KY arranged an excursion to Finnair’s office. Little did our kylteris know that their participation would be rewarded beyond their expectations, as invitations to board the new aircraft were only announced at the end of the excursion.

Fall came and so did the time for our trip. On board, we got to experience the new Airbus A350 in action and witness its amazing features. Finnair has promoted the plane actively and we were pleased to see that the hype surrounding the A350 was not unfounded! We were all highly impressed with the spacious cabin design, state-of-the-art entertainment system and Nordic lights -installation.

During the trip we were not only introduced to the plane, but also to Vienna Airport. Finnair was an excellent host and made us feel extremely welcome – at the end of the excursion, we even had the honor to meet Finnair’s CEO Pekka Vauramo in person.  Thank you, Finnair, for this once in a lifetime experience – we’re extremely excited to continue our cooperation and see our shared ideas take flight!
