For an international travel hub, Helsinki Airport is surprisingly compact. This comes in handy for both transfer passengers and those who drive their own car to the airport. In fact, all the car parks are so close that you can walk from them to the terminals in 15 minutes.
We tried out exactly how long it takes to walk from the car park entrance to the entrance of Terminal 1 and 2. The results are listed below (from shortest time to the longest) with distance, steps, times and prices for one day of parking (calculate the prices for longer stays here).

For those dropping off or picking up someone from the airport, there’s also short term parking areas close to the terminal.
