With Finnair turning 100 years old in November 2023, Moomin characters will be featured on the livery of two Airbus A350 widebody aircraft for the year.

The registration numbers of the aircraft are OH-LWP and OH-LWO. The Moomin aircraft will fly to various long-haul destinations in Finnair’s network, like Dallas, Tokyo and Bangkok.
In addition to the Moomin livery, Finnair Technical Operations in Helsinki have painted the centenary slogan “Bringing us together since 1923” on three other aircraft. The registration numbers of the aircraft are OH-LWR (A350), OH-LXM (A320) and OH-LXK (A320).
Finnair’s CEO Topi Manner said:
“Finnair’s mission is to enrich life by bridging the world. This is also the theme of our centenary. Moomins represent friendship, community and going on adventures together, so they are a great fit for our values,”
“Customers will be able to see the centenary in many ways throughout 2023, as we remember our heritage and look forward to the next 100 years.”
Roleff Kråkström, Managing Director of Moomin Characters Ltd. added:
“Finnair is one of Moomin’s major licensees and we’ve been working together since the 1990s. We’re very happy to see this collaboration extended with the new Moomin livery on Finnair aircraft,”
“Moomin is a character-brand grounded in the universal and timeless values of tolerance, acceptance and friendship upon which Nordic societies are built. These are the values that come to life in the Moomin embrace depicted in the Finnair 100 livery,”
A longtime return for the Moomins in the air
Whilst Finnair has Moomins everywhere (especially in some of its products for smaller passengers, it will make the first time the Moomins were seen in Finnair aircraft livery was in the mid-1990s.
