Finnair introduce Corporate Programme in Ireland

The Finnair Corporate Programme is an easy and budget-friendly solution for cost-conscious corporate clients. Your business clients can enjoy discounts on flight tickets immediately after enrolling, and the flexible ticket types allow for last-minute changes. Your client can book and purchase flights with you, their preferred travel agent.  On enrolment they provide details of their travel agent.  Finnair will then send you a dedicated client code for automatic application of discounts.


There are three membership levels in the Finnair Corporate Programme: Silver, Gold and Platinum. The higher your company’s membership level, the greater the discounts. The membership level is reviewed every six months and is defined based on the flight purchases made during the tracking period.

Your company can enjoy Silver-level membership discounts immediately on enrolment.

*discount from ticket types BUSINESS (C, D), BUSINESS SAVER (I)**, PRO (Y), PRO (B, H), VALUE (K, M) and VALUE (P, T)

** BUSINESS SAVER (I) with advanced purchase rule is not discounted.

*** Silver, Gold and Platinum level discounts on flights to Japan and North America: J, C, D, I, W, Y, B = 11%, A, E, H = 6%

Discounted fares for one-way flights in the Finnair Corporate Programme are only available in travel class Y (ticket type PRO). On return trips travel must start and end in the same country.
