Mikko Tainio has been appointed to succeed Janne Tarvainen as managing director of Finnair Cargo at the end of July.

Mr Tarvainen is leaving Finnair to become managing director of Nordic Regional Airlines (Norra) in August.

Jaakko Schildt, Finnair’s SVP operations, said: “I would like to thank Janne for his great leadership during a time when Finnair Cargo transitioned to a new era, introducing its state-of-the-art cargo terminal, the COOL Nordic Cargo Hub, with modern tools and ways of working.

“I wish him all the best for his new role at Norra.”

Mr Tainio is currently managing director of Finnair Kitchen and has “vast experience from different Finnair functions, having worked in key positions in finance and ground operations”.

“I am happy to see the great work that’s been done by the Finnair Cargo team in recent years, particularly the ambitious transformation of working practices and successful expansion of COOL terminal operations,” Mr Tainio said.

I look forward to continuing the journey with the team towards achieving 1m daily cargo kg and sharpening the competitive edge that new technologies and processes give us,” he added.
