Finnair becomes first airline in the world to use alertness modelling

Finnair has introduced an alertness model in the creation of crew schedules – the first airline in the world to do so. The new scientifically determined and experimentally verified system has been formulated with the aid of the Boeing Alertness Model (BAM). The model assesses a pilot’s state of alertness and promotes flight safety and wellbeing in work.

"The cornerstone of Finnair’s flight operations is safety. Finnair continually develops operating practices that support safety and wellbeing in work and takes proactive steps to reduce possible safety risks. That’s why we wanted to be involved in the Jeppesen research from the very start," says Finnair's Vice President, Safety and Quality Management Antti Aukia.

#Finland: Court and Employee Use of Frequent Flyer Points | Totally Expat.com | Finland | Scoop.it
The Finnish Supreme Administrative Court has issued a decision (KHO 2011:26)1 that should be of interest to employers of business travelers, relating to the employer’s tax withholding liability and social security contribution payments on airline bonus point benefits accrued from business travel.

The court ruled that the employer was not liable for unpaid tax withholding and employer’s social security charges and that any liabilities assessed against the employer were thus nullified.

Morgan Swann's curator insight, December 4, 2013 1:01 AM

On a flight to India, flight attendants surprised passengers with a fun Bollywood dance to celebrate India's Republic Day in January. 

 

The airline, Finnair, earned some serious props from much of India, helping them gain a more profitable business stance as the "fun" airline. 

 

Once again, viral video marketing at its best. It is so important to note the power of the internet. With just this video, Finnair was able to put a postitive image of their company in viewers' minds. If I were flying to India, I would fly Finnair just becuase of this video.

'Ash cloud won't ground Scandinavian flights'

HELSINKI, May 24, 2011 (AFP) - The giant cloud of volcanic ash spreading from Iceland will reach southern Sweden Tuesday night, but is not expected to be thick enough to prevent air travel, Finnish experts said Tuesday.

"At the moment it looks like the ash cloud will spread into southern Sweden at 2100 Finnish time (1800 GMT), and it looks as if it will be moving east, but we don't have an estimate as to when it might hit Finland," Raine Luojus, a spokesman for the country's aviation safety authority Finavia, told AFP.
