It provides them with peace of mind knowing that their accumulated miles will not be expired after a determined period. If you share this type of situation then you can be assured you can collect your awarded frequent flyer miles with the knowledge there is an option available to you.

Key Awards Factors for Members

Member benefits are an integral factor of any rewards program and to this end, Finnair Plus rewards its customers with airlines miles based on the distance flown. This is instead of them being dependent on the price paid for a ticket. A further influencing factor is that this innovative rewards program continues to award miles in respect to a significantly discounted economy class ticket!
