Frequently asked questions about carwash
What kind of washes are available?
Options for washing services can be found on the reservation web page together with the selection for the parking area.
If I have paid for carwash services in addition to parking, where do I leave my car keys for the duration of the trip?
Keys are left to the locker in the arrivals hall. Locker is located opposite the airport and parking info. You can also leave the keys straight to the car wash center located in P1 Premium parking area.
I couldn’t find the marked parking spots for those who have booked a car wash. Who do I inform of where my car is parked?
When leaving your keys in an envelope with a note, please inform the location of your car.
Where/how my car will be washed?
Car wash services are provided by an external provider Korrek Pro Center. Your car will be hand washed in the car wash center located in P1 Premium parking area.
How do I find the parking spaces that are intended for carwash customers?
The reservation confirmation message that you received contains instructions on where to leave your car if you have also paid for carwash services. If necessary, you can get help on-site also by calling Finavia’s service number, 020 708 3200 /24h.

P3 1,9 m
P5 2,0 m
There are no carwash services available in the outdoor parking areas.
I want to cancel my carwash reservation. Can this be done without at the same time cancelling the parking reservation?
When the carwash services are purchased within parking pre-booking, the reservation is necessarily a single entity. In other words, it is not possible to cancel part of the reservation without cancelling the entire reservation. In such situations, the best option is to cancel the reservation (parking+carwash) and make a new reservation for parking only.
Is it possible to park an electric car at the spot marked for those who have booked a car wash?
It is possible. Please note that those spots are not equipped with charging platforms.
Is it necessary to remove the antenna or roof racks before bringing the car to the carwash?
There is no need to remove the antenna or roof racks.
