Although you can’t bring liquids through security, consider carrying an empty water bottle with you to refill at one of Helsinki Airport’s free water points.
Helsinki Airport’s cold drinking water taps are located in 12 different washrooms. In Finland, all tap water is pure, fresh and drinkable.
“A total of 12 washrooms in our main traffic areas have cold water taps where passengers can refill their empty water bottles with cold drinking water free of charge. These automatic taps are located in 6 men’s washrooms and 6 ladies’ washrooms found near Gates 12–13, 21, 26, 29 and 32,” says Jukka Isomäki, Director at Finavia.
In addition, there are now two hot and cold water dispensers in the South Pier, near Gate 54, where passengers can also get hot water free of charge.
A bottle of water for 1 euro
Passengers can also buy drinking water at two spots in the airside area. These selling points are located at Gates 13 and 26. Each bottle costs €1. If you pay 2 Euros one euro will go as a donation to helping children in developing countries.
Sparkling water is available and later in the autumn, still water will be offered.
The 1 euro water bottle selling points are designed and carried out Finavia's long-term partner in social responsibility Pland Finland and a Finnish family owned company Finn Spring.

Of course, passengers can also purchase bottled water at the airport’s various restaurants and cafés, and at R-kioski (Gates 29, 36 and Terminal 2, Departure floor).
Water is essential to flying and now, at last, you won’t go thirsty at the Helsinki Airport.
