In 6 weeks print articles were issued in over 1000 international media, including Frankfurter Allgemeine, BBC radio, Korea Times and Hindustan Times. At a press conference in Delhi 50 journalists with a print coverage of over 200Mio readers attended the event. Today Google gives 17, 400 hits for “Finnair 2093”.
