The upcoming weekend will be busy at Helsinki Airport. Finavia requests passengers to reserve extra time for arriving to the airport as well as baggage drop and security control between 18 and 19 July.

The congestion will be due to the ending of an international gymnastics event Gymnaestrada held in Helsinki. Around 20 000 gymnasts all over the world visited Helsinki during the event.
