Air Finland: Brand overview

Air Finland is a charter airline based in Finland from 2002 to 2012. Specializing in tourist and charter flights, it connected Finland to various destinations in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Air Finland’s main hub was Helsinki Airport, with a special focus on leisure flights. The airline had a compact fleet of only two Boeing 757 aircraft.

Air Finland served a variety of popular vacation destinations such as Spain, Greece, Egypt, Thailand, and the Canary Islands. At its peak, the airline successfully carried more than 400,000 passengers per year.

Owned by several Finnish tourism executives, Air Finland was initially successful. Unfortunately, rising fuel prices and increased competition led to financial difficulties, and in 2012, the airline was forced to declare bankruptcy and cease operations.

One of Air Finland’s unique offerings was vacation packages, in which tour operators often included charter flights. Air Finland was a prominent player in the Helsinki aviation industry, employing about 200 people, including pilots, crew, and other personnel.

Due to financial difficulties, Air Finland’s ten-year journey as a Finnish charter airline specializing in charter flights and holiday packages from Helsinki came to an end in 2012.

Air Finland Logo

The centerpiece of the bankrupt Air Finland’s logo is its name in unique bold italics. The color of the lettering matches the dark blue of the Scandinavian cross on the country’s flag. All letters are capitalized, but the initials “A” and “F” are additionally enlarged. The thickness of the strokes is very contrasting, giving the emblem a modern and energetic look. The first word is enclosed in a yellow circle, which probably symbolizes the sun – a symbol of hope, optimism, eternity, and vitality.

The use of bold italics and contrasting strokes in thickness creates a visually striking logo designed to attract attention and convey a sense of forward motion. The color scheme, inspired by the flag of Finland, creates a strong national identity. The yellow circle symbolizing the sun gives the logo added meaning, potentially symbolizing the company’s commitment to longevity and success.
