Filming instructions at Helsinki Airport

As a rule, filming at Helsinki Airport is only possible when the traffic flow is slow: on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

So that passengers can smoothly and safely move from place to place, the filming crew and equipment should be as compact as possible. The implementation of major filming projects is subject to several limitations.

What does it cost?

When necessary, Finavia will charge €480 per hour + VAT at 24% for filming at Helsinki Airport.

The price includes terminal facility use arrangements, possible technical assistance, security arrangements and the salaries of assistants and coordinators.

Where can I find the filming request form?
