Ari Soinola


Hi, my name is Ari Soinola, Director Cargo Excellence. I started my Finnair journey more than 20 years ago from Finnair Cargo and now it is nice to be back in the Cargo team again.

Finnair and Finnair Cargo are facing fascinating times with new A350 wide body aircrafts and times of growth. My responsibility is to ensure that Finnair Cargo is ready for that growth. In practice this means that we have a new Cargo terminal and new IT system is up and running by early 2017. Our target is to build a state of the art Cargo terminal, which utilizes automation where possible and also supports Finnair Cargo product development.

Airfreight industry is also entering a new era. Finally - first concrete steps have been taken towards eFreight and paperless processes. eFreight development is also included in my responsibility area. Together with new fleet, new state of the art cargo terminal and eFreight we have the possibility to improve customer experience and develop competitive advantage into a new level.

I am very excited about the future challenges and the development project we have ahead of us, and also very proud to be part of the Cargo team and, together with my colleagues, create a brand new home base for Finnair Cargo.
