HELSINKI, Finland -- Finnair is accelerating its growth and is therefore planning an organisational renewal as of 1 March 2016 in line with its growth strategy.
After multi-year savings programmes, the company is now preparing for growth on the back of its new A350 aircraft. The new era requires an organisation which enables growth in the optimal manner. The company is heading for the right direction, and it is now seeking the agility needed to take advantage of growth opportunities.
"We have worked hard in recent years to improve our competitiveness, and the year 2015 proved that we are clearly on the right track. We are heading for the right direction, and now our aim is to gain speed and capability to grasp new business opportunities. We want to ensure that we create an organisation which enables, and accelerates, the generation of growth. Growth requires resources and sharper focus in some areas," emphasises Pekka Vauramo, Finnair CEO.
"We now want to place the customer experience even more prominently in the core in our operations. This is key in our growth strategy. Our business environment is in a continuous state of transformation, and therefore we must be proactive in order to respond swiftly to adaptation needs," Vauramo states. "Our objective is to offer the customer a unique Nordic experience and a more extensive and competitive network than before. While doing so, we need to ensure that we further develop our operational reliability, which is already world-class."
Finnair’s new organisation is anticipated to take effect on 1 March 2016. The announced organisational renewal plans will require consultation of employee representatives in accordance with the Act on Co-operation within Undertakings.
