“Finavia’s goal is safe and smooth air traffic in all weather conditions. It is based on our winter maintenance and cooperation with air traffic control, airlines and ground handling companies,” says Jani Elasmaa, Finavia’s Vice President responsible for Helsinki Airport’s runway and apron operations.
On Saturday, snowfall will be abundant especially in the early hours of the morning and in the afternoon, which may affect runway ploughing and aircraft deicing.
Delays in departing flights may also have an impact on arriving flights and baggage claim.
We ask passengers to follow the communications of their airline to keep up to date about potential cancellations and long delays. Real-time information about arriving and departing flights at Helsinki Airport is available on the Finavia website.
