Governance principles

Finavia Corporation’s and Finavia Group’s decision-making and governance are based on the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act as well as on the articles of association of Finavia Corporation and its subsidiaries.

Finavia complies with the 2015 Finnish Corporate Governance Code of the Securities Market Association for listed companies, as applicable. The most notable deviations from the code are due to the fact that Finavia only has one owner, the state. For this reason, compliance with all sections of the code is not considered necessary. In addition to these, Finavia follows the statement by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Policy regarding the remuneration of executive management and key individuals, issued on 12 May 2016.

Finavia’s Board of Directors confirmed the governance principles including the principles of risk management and internal control last at its meeting on 26 August 2016. Finavia has a special, industry-specific security management system that forms a material part of its risk management.


Finavia is a public limited company and the state of Finland is its sole owner. The Prime Minister's Office is responsible for the ownership steering of Finavia. 

Finavia Corporation is domiciled in Vantaa.
