Aktia and Finnair have agreed on co-operation and will introduce a new Finnair Visa credit card into the market in spring 2022. With the co-operation, one of the most popular credit cards in the world will be made available to Finnair Plus members and at the same time, they will earn Finnair Plus points by making purchases with the card.
Finnair Plus points can be used not only for award flights but also, for example, for upgrading the travel class, hotel nights or gift cards from restaurants. Finnair Plus points can also be donated to different charities, such as UNICEF, CMI or The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation.
“We want to offer our customers first class means of payment, and co-operation with an iconic and reliable Finnish company such as Finnair is a special cause of joy for Aktia. I cannot wait to be able to introduce the new card into the market during next spring,” says Anssi Huhta, EVP, Director for Banking Business at Aktia.
“It is great that we can make a new way of making payments available to our customers together with Aktia. With the Finnair Visa credit card, our customers will have even more comprehensive opportunities to earn Finnair Plus points,” says Pekka Antila, Director of the Finnair Plus programme.
The procurement instructions and the more detailed card terms will follow later in spring 2022.
