Mikko Tainio will take over as managing director of Finnair Cargo, succeeding Janne Tarvainen who is joining Nordic Regional Airlines at the end of July.
Tainio is currently the managing director of Finnair Kitchen and has experience of different Finnair functions, having held positions in finance and ground operations.
Commenting on his new role, Tainio says: “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. I look forward to continuing the journey with the team towards achieving one million daily cargo kilos and sharpening the competitive edge that new technologies and processes give us.”
Jaakko Schildt, SVP operations at Finnair says: “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.”
