Mikko Turtiainen


My name is Mikko Turtiainen, and I work as vice president of global sales at Finnair Cargo.

I would describe my 15 years at Finnair with the saying: ”time flies when you are having fun.” I’ve worked on the passenger side of things, as well as in many sales roles in Finland, the Far East and North America. I also headed up the launch of our Shanghai passenger operations, and worked in revenue management and pricing for two years. I’ve experienced quite a bit here.

I have been part of the Finnair Cargo team for a few of years now. After working as vice president of business development, I moved into my current position in June 2012.

I agree with the comments I received when I started at Finnair Cargo in 2011: “Cargo is the place to be!”
