FinnairFinnair will start collaborating with Bókun, an Iceland-based sales and contract management platform for the tours and activities industry. The collaboration aims to speed up the digitalisation of tours and activities in Finland, and to make various experiences easily available for international travellers.

Finnair and Bókun will arrange a series of workshops for tour operators to familiarize them with the new platform.

 

 

“We want to make the unique Finnish travel experiences more easily and effectively available for our international customer base,” adds Harra-Salonen. “The further development of our travel-related ecosystem is an important focus area for us.”

 

 

“It is an honour for us to be part of the digitalization of the Finnish travel industry, and our proven platform offers a concrete tool for this,” says Hjalti Baldursson, CEO of Bókun.
