pt-finnair-ohlbr-acores-130409-full.jpg

For several years, at least from 1997 to 2013 Finnair had Boeing B757-200 planes which it used for long-haul leisure flights, for example from Helsinki to Thailand or to Azores, to Egypt, Toronto, and even to Brazil. The last B757 Finnair flight took place from Helsinki to Fuerteventura 19.1.2014. Passengers hated these aircraft. Not because they would be bad quality planes, but because Finnair had packed to seats so close to each other and had used so uncomfortable chairs that especially for the long-legged traveller they were sheer torture. Leisure flight customers called them "marsuhäkki", guinea pig cage. Finnair had three of them. Here is one of them, OH-LBR. Its first flight was in October 1997 and Finnair used it from late 1997 until 2013 with the exception that it was rented to XL Airways France for a couple of months during 2007. After Finnair got rid of it, OH-LBR became EI-LBR and has been used in Ireland for Aer Lingus and ASL Airlines Ireland. In 2019 it's still in use by Aer Lingus.

Nordic Regional Airlines NORRA

fi-norra-ohato-helsinkivantaa-030419-full.jpg

Finnair no longer operates its smallest machines itself. The whole ATR-72 fleet has been retaped with the texts Nordic Regional Airlines NORRA and NORRA is also operating the whole of Finnair's Embraer 190 fleet, although the Embraers still retain their Finnair logos on the outside of the planes. Formerly the same routes now operated by NORRA were operated by FlyBe on behalf of Finnair and even before that by Aero, which was a Finnair subsidiary company registered in Estonia. OH-ATO is an ATR-72 version 500 which was delivered to FlyBe in November 2011. NORRA took it over in the summer of 2015 as FlyBe withdrew itself from the Finnish market.
