The press does not require a filming permit when working at the public areas at Helsinki Airport or at any of Finavia's regional airports.
In order to facilitate practical arrangements, however, film crews and journalists are kindly asked to notify Finavia's media desk before their arrival. This also allows any necessary arrangements to be made:
Airside (transit) areas and the apron can only be accessed after passing through security control. Moving about in these areas requires escort and transport arrangements made by Finavia.
All live television and radio broadcasts made from the airport must be agreed with Fintraffic Air Navigation Services if satellite technology is used during the broadcast. If the broadcast is done by using mobile network, informing Fintraffic Air Navigation Services is not required.
Filming at the security control areas, where filming of any kind is prohibited, has to be agreed in advance with Finavia.
At Helsinki Airport, take-offs and landings can be photographed and filmed on the scenic terrace.
Instructions for flying a drone near an airport or in the controlled air space as well as information about radio recordings and saved radar images of air traffic control can be found at Fintraffic Air Navigation Services.
