“We are excited about this collaboration and the new functionality which enables us to utilize the entire capacity of the Finnish railway system. The Finnish train system is carbon dioxide neutral, so we can offer emission-free transports to Jetpak’s customers. Our train network covers areas that are essential for Jetpak’s customers” says Topi Simola, VR’s Director of Passenger Traffic.
“During the pandemic, we are looking for alternative ways to grow and maintain our business. For Jetpak this is a great opportunity due to the reduction of available flights. We at Jetpak believe that the co-operation with VR is a great opportunity for the future, due to the fast connections and low environmental impact. “; comments Markus Haapanen Sales Manager of Jetpak Finland.
