Finnair SkyWheel arrives in Helsinki

The Finnair SkyWheel opened to the public this week at the Katajanokka Harbour in central Helsinki, not far from where Finnair first based its flight operations (as Aero Oy) in the 1920s.
The 40-metre observation wheel is equipped with 30 climate-controlled blue-and-white gondolas for year-round operation, including one special VIP cabin featuring glass floor, leather seats and Veuve Clicquot champagne service. One trip on the Finnair SkyWheel takes about 15 minutes, while a ride in the VIP cabin lasts approximately 25 minutes.

“This summer the Finnair SkyWheel will take thousands of visitors on a scenic tour above the rooftops of Helsinki,” says Jarkko Konttinen, Finnair’s Vice President, Marketing and Product Development. “We are proud to be associated with Helsinki’s newest landmark, which also has a special connection to our own history.”
