How about a cup of coffee at your gate, delivered by bicycle?

Gate Roastery brings you freshly brewed coffee directly to your gate while you wait for your flight. The coffee will be delivered by a Finnish-made Pelago bicycle.

Having a cup of coffee is the most Finnish thing you can do at Helsinki Airport. The keenest coffee-drinkers in the world, the Finns drink an astounding 5.7 cups of coffee per day, on average. That’s more than twice as much as in Belgium, Canada or France. Having a nice cup of coffee is a very Finnish thing and an essential part of nearly all everyday activities. So why not have a cup, while you wait for your flight?

As a part of the TravelLab project, Finavia is bringing this invigorating Finnish ritual to Helsinki Airport passengers, directly to the gate. In Gate Roastery, Finnish quality coffee from Helsinki-based Kaffa Roastery is brought to passengers waiting for their flights at the gate area. They will have the opportunity to buy a freshly brewed cup or a souvenir of Kaffa products to be enjoyed at home.

Our TravelLab technicians will be zooming around the airport with sleek and classy Finnish-made Pelago bicycles.

Apart from enjoying a refreshing cup of coffee, the participants will get to share their opinions on the service. Gate Roastery is a part of Finavia’s innovative TravelLab project, which brings prototypes of possible new services for the passengers to test.

Gate Roastery will be operating on selected dates in June:

  • 13.6. from 2 pm to 5 pm
  • 17.6. from 2 pm to 5 pm
  • 18.6. from 2 pm to 5 pm
  • 20.6. from 6 am to 8 am
