Finnair is about to start direct flights from Stockholm to Bangkok, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Phuket for the winter season and is now offering a status match opportunity for members in Sweden until November 2.
Existing or new Finnair Plus members are eligible for a match if their account address is in Sweden and hold status with a non-Oneworld airline. They also must purchase one of the long-haul flights from Sweden with a travel date on or before March 31, 2022.
You can access this offer on Finnair’s website here.
The status match is processed in two weeks and, if the member later cancels the Finnair flight, the status is revoked. The match’s status is valid for a year from the date it is processed.
Finnair Plus matches under this offer to Silver, Gold, or Platinum. Lumo is excluded.
Here’s what you need to do:
Sign up for the Finnair Plus membership if you’re not yet a member. It’s free and easy to join!

Finnair Plus Oneworld Status Mapping
Silver maps to Oneworld Ruby, Gold to Oneworld Sapphire, and Platinum & Lumo to Oneworld Emerald.
Finnair Plus Elite Tier Benefits:
Finnair is trying to get SAS frequent fliers to switch from Eurobonus by offering to match the status, although it is open for other program members.
For quite some time, SAS had an affiliate in Finland called Blue1 that was also a Star Alliance member airline. SAS eventually pulled the plug and stopped funding this money-losing operation.
Let’s see for how long Finnair operated these direct flights from Sweden and if they all will even take off.
