On floats and skis

In the beginning of the industry many airlines started with a pier and a hut close to the shoreline because water was the cheapest runaway.

This was the case of Aero O/Y, the predecessor of Finnair, which was established 90 years ago.

The photo depicts the company’s very first aircraft, a Junkers F-13. In the winter of 1924. It changed floats to skis but used the same runaway.
