Helsinki Airport invests in services for transit passengers

At Helsinki Airport, Finavia has invested in international transit services with a particular focus being placed on Asian transit passengers. An example of this being put into practice is the translation of airport signs and website services into Japanese. In addition, Japanese citizens with biometric passports can complete their border control conveniently and with minimum fuss at the automatic border control.

Helsinki Airport is one of the most important airports for traffic between Japan and Europe. Its location enables passengers to enjoy the fastest and most direct route between Asia and Europe.
