Finnair Introduces Sustainable Design and Skincare with Refreshed Business Class Amenities by Marimekko and L:A Bruket
Amenity Kits and Eye Shades in eight Marimekko designs new to Finnair
With the launch of our new service between Helsinki and Los Angeles on March 31st, Finnair continues its longstanding partnership with Finnish design house Marimekko, and introduces a range of new amenities for business class passengers. The amenities will be rolled out for all trans-continental flights on Airbus A350 and Airbus A330 aircraft. As sleep is an important part of the business class experience, Finnair has also upgraded the business class eye shades with soft-touch fabric and higher-quality straps and the ear plugs are also more effective.
Improved sustainability with recycled plastic, bio plastic and on-demand concept
Each new amenity kit will come wrapped in a cardboard band – instead of plastic – with a QR code that customers can scan with a personal mobile device to read more about Isola’s inspiration for the patterns. The information is provided in a range of languages and can be accessed inflight via the Nordic Sky Wi-Fi portal.
The toothbrush is made from bio-plastic containing cornstarch, and plastic wrappings for the earplugs have been replaced with wax paper. In addition, the new business class slippers are a Nordic-style design made entirely from recycled PET plastic bottles. As with the amenity kit, each new pair of slippers comes wrapped in a cardboard band instead of the previous plastic packaging.
With these changes, Finnair will be able to reduce plastic waste by
almost 4500 kg per year.
L:A Bruket skin care products will now be available in lounges, airplane cabins and amenity kits
The new amenity kits will have products from L:A Bruket – a natural and organic skincare brand from Sweden. Each amenity kit includes aluminum tubes of almond-coconut lip cream and a chamomile-lavender facial hydrator from L:A Bruket. Finnair will also offer L:A Bruket hand soap and hand cream in its on-board business class lavatories, as well as L:A Bruket products in its airport lounge bathrooms and shower suites.
Finnair would also provide an on-demand concept for some of the less commonly used amenity items, including razors, socks and combs. Memory-foam pillows are available on demand too, along with shawls made of a modacrylic-wool-blend with a soft and warm feel.
