Description

This richly illustrated book (with drawings) recounts the first 50 years of existence of one of the most important European airline. Through various chapters such as the age of the pioneers, intercontinental development, its economic successes, and many others, this book teaches us the history of Finnair until 1973.

 

 " . . . Helsinki seems to have every qualification for becoming a notable junction and transit station in the network of European air routes. "

 

These words were written for the Finnish periodical Aero by the founder of Finnair, an engineer named Bruno Lucander, in October 1924, or about a year after the company was started. The pretentious subject of Mr. Lucander's article was " Helsing-fors as an Air Traffic Centre ". The article assessed the results of the young Finnish airline's operations and the experience gained during its existence of less than a year  and reflecting the founder's imaginative and enterprising spirit, it boldly laid out plans for new routes to be flown.

 

Today, half a century later, it can truthfully be said that the oracular stance taken by Finnair's founder was justified. His visions have materialized. Helsinki is a " notable junction and transit station " in the network not only of European but also intercontinental air routes. Considered from the vantage point of today and tomorrow, Finnair can claim even much more. Finnair has the distinction of having been, starting in 1956, the builder of the first peacetime air lift between East and West.
