Finnair Map

I was watching a video of a Finnair flight on a map, I noticed that India was named Hindustan on the map. Is that a name used in Finland?

No. India is "Intia" in Finnish.

Thanks, not a Finish map then...

Must have been from one of the flight tracker programs.

The flight graphics software has a very peculiar way of picking up datapoints on the map to show. Sometimes it picks up small regional airports and leaves entire countries unnamed, occasionally it selects the wrong localisation for place names. None of it makes any sense.

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised.
