“Finavia aims to continuously develop services for passengers. We are pleased to start cooperation with Aava Medical Centre, which has strong expertise in travel clinic services. The COVID-19 pandemic has made health and safety even more important than before, and Aava’s services represent a quick response to the new needs of passengers,” says Vice President Nora Immonen, Director of Commercial Services at Helsinki Airport.
Aava Medical Centre’s services will be available to all departing passengers as well as passengers arriving on flights that are not subject to internal border controls.
COVID-19 testing included in the service offering
Aava Airport’s services include on-site basic health care and remote appointments with doctors.
Aava’s service point at the airport will provide passengers with quick treatment for common complaints such as migraine, stomach problems, earache and allergic reactions. Certain travel vaccinations can also be provided if the customer gets to the airport in good time. Customers can also conveniently renew their prescriptions, as the Aava clinic will offer remote appointments with doctors.
COVID-19 testing will also be included in the clinic’s service offering. Asymptomatic passengers can be tested when their destination country requires a certificate of a negative test result.
“Aava has strong expertise in aviation medicine and travel health. We are pleased to have the opportunity to make our expertise available to passengers and the airport. This is a new initiative for us and Finavia, and the service offering will be refined on the basis of customer needs and demand,” says Managing Director Raija Tapio from Aava.
For businesses, operating in the airport’s gate area comes with a number of requirements. The cooperation between Finavia and Aava Medical Centre will seamlessly combine health services and the airport environment. The aim is to develop a concept that serves customers in the best possible manner.
