Finnair announced it is rolling out new upgrades to commemorate its 90th anniversary, which will take place on November 1.

The Helsinki-based airline is currently in the process of retrofitting an additional eight long-haul aircraft with lie-flat seats in business class. The upgrades are expected to be completed by next September.

Last month, Finnair also announced new signature meals, created by top Finnish chefs, for business class passengers. In addition, the airline rolled out its Marimekko for Finnair collection, which includes new pillows, blankets, headrest covers, napkins, and tableware, in all of its aircraft.

A new lounge is expected to open next spring, and will be available for use by Finnair Plus Platinum and Gold members and their guests, as well as to frequent flyer cardholders with equivalent status on other oneworld alliance airlines.

On long-haul flights, the airline nearly doubled the amount of in-flight entertainment options, providing passengers in business and economy class with a choice of 72 movies and over 150 TV shows on demand. In addition, passengers on Airbus A321 aircraft may rent an entertainment-loaded Samsung Tab 3 for a fee of 10 euros.

The airline also began construction on a new Premium Lounge in the airport, which will include private shower suites and a Finnish sauna.
