On Wednesday, 10 April the FCCJ organized in cooperation with Finnair a Joint Nordic Breakfast Meeting with one of the most prominent Finnish business leaders, Mr. Topi Manner, the new President & CEO of Finnair as our speaker.

In his presentation Mr. Manner pointed out that Finnair is one of the oldest airlines in the world, with 13,3 million passengers in 2018 and currently 82 aircrafts and almost 7,000 employees. Finnair flies to 19 destinations in Asia, 8 in the Americas and over 100 destinations in Europe.

Mr. Manner emphasized that Japan is a very important market for Finnair, the largest after Finland. Finnair is the largest European airline to Japan measured by number of flights, from 5 destinations (when Sapporo is added in December) in Japan.

The event, ending in a very lively Q&A session, was attended by 31 members from FCCJ and the Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic Chambers.
