    One of the best airport I've ever been. It is not so crowded, no big queues on check in and security control, free WiFi. Also you can find many electrical outlets here.

    Although it's a fairly busy airport, this one is surprisingly calm. Nice spaces, clean, lots of places to eat. Grab yourself a Fazer chocolate at a shop and get acquainted with Moomin while you wait.

    For the cheapest ride (€4) into the city centre, take bus 615 outside terminal 2 (platform 21).

    Not London, not LA, and not Paris either: No, the honorary title of World Design Capital belongs to Helsinki - at least in 2012. Our travel report for Helsinki will show some highlights of the city. Read more

    Alepa in the arrivals floor sells Finnish food for those who dare to try karjalanpiirakka and such. A perfect spot right after landing for Finnish expats with cravings ♡

    If you r looking for breakfast and have a little time to spare, go to gate 14a there is a breakfast buffet. For €14 you get a lot more for ur money than just buying a sandwich at one of the kiosks

    It's the easiest airport to navigate. And of course I'm a bit partial, it is my home county. Hihi… *(",)*

    One of the most convenient airports in the world. It took me just 10 minutes from the cab to the gate. Oh and they have a pretty fast free wifi.

    As You could expect in Finland - everything here is done well. From normal, working wifi, trough tasty croissants (however food rather expensive) to places for rest and well organised security control
  • Oula Y.
    Staff is usually very friendly, and although it can get a little crowded during rush hours, it's still a very nice and organized airport!

    First of all, purchase prepaid SIM card at KIOSK before heading to Helsinki city !! And if you have single ticket for a train, do not forget to validate a ticket on a train.

    Go to Wine And View for a quick snack ! A few euros over the other options, but worth it. Sit on designer chairs, eat quality scandinavian tapas, and enjoy the view

    There are "sleeping pods" dotted around the airport where you can lie on a flat bed, isolate the noise by closing in a shutter - even charge your phone inside! Get snapped up really quickly though.

    This is one of the best airports for wifi and charging station availability. Not too far from center city Helsinki by bus. Clean.

    Use the Finnair bus only 6.30€. Makes a few stops (certain hotels on request) before reaching the Helsinki rail station. Only a 30 min trip.

    Good spaces, good stores, best of all free wi-fi access. Two options to take taxi: take out, is more expenaive or take inside with others in th same route, cheaper.

    Good but expensive duty free shoping with famous brand as Marimekko, Arabica and Moomin. Free Wi-Fi in all airport. Best coffee in Terminal 1 at Johan&Nyström.

    Rent a mobile broadband for your visit in Finland. It is the best way to use Internet while traveling. Get it from Zonga in Arrivals terminal 2A or Avis desk in the corridor between terminals 1 and 2.

    Check from which terminal your flight is departing - there are two of those! Free wi-fi available on all airport. If you are in need for some coffee - Starbucks is near the entrance on T1.

    Great for food shopping but don't rely on it as they run low on stock easily (if you are looking for Finnish food). Great luxury and kitchenware shopping options

    There seems to be at least one Finn missing from all the flights. Irritated calls "This is absolutely the final call for mr. so and so. Your gate is closing" fill the air. Don't be that guy.

    The departure hall is right next to the gates, quick service and very clean and neat. Not a massive amount of shops. Non-schengen gates are far away, go to pass control well ahead of time!!

    Best waiting place at gate 24 of T2. A meter away from main entramce to gate there are two tables with the most comfortable chairs at the gate. Enjoy the waiting time!

    One of the Best Airport in Europe ... and probably the best one... Allowing you to use Internet for FREE [not like some French ## Airports ...]

    Passenger-friendly airport, one of my favourites in the world! If you dislike transiting at LHR or FRA, you should consider here, its much more pleasant than those airports

    Nice and quiet sitting area with comfy chairs and electricity outlets in Terminal 1 next to gate 16. No need to worry for someone watching over your shoulder :)
  • Povilas J.
    Easy to navigate and takes only a moment to transfer between gates. Smooth passport control and self-service works great! The airport itself gets boring after 30minutes

    Go Sleep pods, if free, are great for private dark sessions, online, or asleep. Not all the buttons always work, and the usbs and power outlets are optionally on though...

    With the Stockmann First card you can go to the Finnair non-Schengen lounge. There's also a buffet food place downstairs if you want to eat but don't want to spend a lot.

    Easy landing and very good introduction. They have 6 different languages so you will not get lost. Hold the shopping or food at tax free because just outside there is shop.

    Not sure if a priority security line exists, but security moves relatively quickly. Clean! Plenty of good food choices in T2, fewer on non-Schengen side. Be careful as status announcements are rare.

    Everything was so fast, that I didn't even realize that we were in Finland already! Even though tough Finnish guys asked us questions like "How long? Accommodation? Where?" Etc, it was all ok!
