Finnair Plus has launched Tier Challenge for SAS Eurobonus Silver, Gold and Diamond members in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Eligible members must sign up by November 30th and take one flight by the end of the year to get Finnair Plus Silver status. Members then can upgrade to Gold status (Oneworld Sapphire) by earning 40,000 status points or take 23 flights within 6 months.
You can access the offer on Finnair’s website here.
Here’s the information on Tier Challenge page:

Finnair Plus is not really doing any favors here because they have merely cut the full 12 months requirements in half that the member now must fulfil in half of the time (6 months).
It would have been better if Finnair had matched at least the Gold and Diamond Eurobonus members to their Gold (Oneworld Sapphire) that comes with lounge access, extra luggage allowance and business class check in benefits alliance wide.
