Christmas at Helsinki Airport

28.11.2016 at 07:00
In December, you can meet the Santa Claus, enjoy delicious mulled wine, take part in an Open Mic gig, wrap gifts and kiss that special someone under the mistletoe, and all this at Helsinki Airport. In addition, one lucky winner will get a magnificent diamond ring from Kalevala Jewelry.

Meet the Santa

The Santa Claus cheers both older and younger travellers at the airport. The Santa visits the airport on 1–23 December.

The gift generator helps you to find the perfect gift

The gift generator moving around at the terminal is not only a funny looking gadget, but also a useful help for travellers looking for Christmas gifts. The generator helps you to choose the most personal and funniest Christmas gifts and souvenirs from the airport's product range.

Gift wrapping stations

The free gift wrapping stations, which were incredibly popular last year, will return to the airport in December. You can bring your Christmas gifts and other souvenirs to the gift wrapping stations in the gate area on 1–23 December.

Christmas deals and seasonal delicacies

Helsinki Airport's cafés and restaurants will provide traditional and modern Yuletide treats in December.

Airport shops offer personal gifts for people of all ages. In addition to the gift generator, you can take a look at our Christmas gifts and seasonal products here.

Through the Helsinki Airport mobile app, you can order and pay Iittala products in advance and pick them up from the Iittala shop at the airport on a suitable date.

Win a diamond ring from Kalevala Jewelry

Christmas is a time of love. This year, Helsinki Airport is, for the first time, decorated with romantic mistletoes that offer ideal places to exchange a kiss.

In December, the #airportkiss competition will be launched in Helsinki Airport's social media channels. A magnificent diamond ring from Kalevala Jewelry will be drawn among everyone who has shared their kiss with this hashtag.

Follow Helsinki Airport's Twitter and Instagram accounts @HelsinkiAirport and take part in the competition!
