OSM Aviation and Finnair announce new cooperation to India
OSM Aviation and the renowned Finnish carrier Finnair are expanding their strategic collaboration to India. The cooperation involves a transferring of crew services on Finnair’s Helsinki-Delhi route to OSM Aviation during the last quarter of 2019. OSM Aviation has been responsible for the cabin services in Finnair’s Singapore and Hong Kong routes since 2015.
“I am very pleased that we are now expanding our professional and valued cooperation with Finnair,” says Espen Høiby, CEO OSM Aviation. “I believe this is yet another manifestation of our strong and mutually beneficial relationship”.
OSM Aviation is the first company to offer total crew management services in international aviation, including recruitment, training, crew management and planning of both flight deck and cabin crew worldwide. OSM Aviation will now be the cabin service provider on the Delhi route catering to international passengers.
“Our customers have been very happy with the service quality in Singapore and Hong Kong flights and we are looking forward to enlarging our cooperation in India, says Eveliina Huurre, Vice President, Inflight Customer Service at Finnair. “We seek a sustainable and profitable growth, and the extended collaboration with OSM Aviation is a good example of this”.
The change does not affect the 2230 Finnair cabin crew members based in Finland. OSM Aviation crew operating on the Delhi route will complete their training at Finnair Flight Academy in Helsinki.
