website provides a range of other information and services related to air
The mobile versions are available at:

Mobile services for passengers improved in multiple ways
The speed of Helsinki Airport's wireless network is now 100 Mb, and many recharging units for electronic devices have been added throughout the terminal.
Working at the airport is now more convenient than ever. The three new Suvanto
lounges provide peaceful, private environments in which to conduct business. The
workstations feature visual and hearing cover, power outlets and a desk.
The Suvanto lounges are part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 campaign, and are a cooperative effort by Finavia, UPM, Martela, Fortum, and Karelia-Upofloor. The lounges are located by Gates 16-17, 26 and 36.
The expansion of mobile services is part of a Finavia initiative to improve the customer experience and satisfaction. The improved services are significant competitive advantages that Helsinki Airport can use to stand out from other airports as it seeks to be the most popular transit airport between Europe and Asia.
