Finnair and Alitrip, a Chinese online travel platform, have signed a long-term strategic partnership which is expected to bring approximately 3,000 Chinese tourists to Finland during the winter months to experience the Northern Lights.
Finnair and Alitrip have designed a 7-day/5-night package product to Finland and Lapland. The itinerary includes 1 night in Helsinki, 2 nights in Rovaniemi and 2 nights in Ivalo.
Alitrip will also establish a service center in Rovaniem. With this new partnership, Finnair becomes the first strategic European airline partner for Alitrip with a project of this magnitude.
Juha Järvinen, chief commercial officer, Finnair, said: “Finland and Lapland have many great things to offer and this new cooperation between Finnair with Alitrip will be a great opportunity for Finland to showcase itself to the Chinese public.
“Thousands of Chinese tourists are expected to visit Finland during the winter months with this new package. Our aim is to grow this long-term cooperation between both companies every year.”
