“We are excited to further develop the food and beverage selection together with our long-term partner, HMSHost International. We are positive our passengers will enjoy the new restaurant concepts. Our aim is to increase the supply of hot foods and offer a wide range of take-away products that are available around the clock”, says Nora Immonen, Director of Commercial Services and Business at Helsinki Airport at Finavia.
The addition of the four new restaurants brings the total to 18 HMSHost restaurants at Helsinki Airport.
“It is a privilege to play a role in the redevelopment of Helsinki Airport and we are delighted to be a part of Finavia’s vison to create world-class service at the airport. We have curated our space to deliver a future-proofed food and beverage portfolio, in terms of local and global flavours, design and sustainability. We want to create places to be, for both our guests and our associates. With each store equipped with a to-go section and seating areas giving views over the airfield, we are the right place at the right time for our guests,” says Sytze van der Aa, Regional Managing Director Europe at HMSHost International.
Italian Kitchen Terracotta offers guests the familiar flavours of the Italian cuisine. The Neapolitan and modern pizzas, paninis and panzerotti suit all parts of the day, from breakfast to dinner. Terracotta is the result of transforming raw quality ingredients in art, with the simple combination of handwork and an eye-catching pizza oven.
Bubbles, HMSHost’s renowned wine and seafood bar responds to a growing trend for premium wines and fresh and healthy seafood dishes. It offers our guests the perfect place to relax and to enjoy elegant cuisine in sumptuous surroundings, while enjoying airfield views.
Expected to open in early 2024; Nordic Kitchen Deli, Bar & Bistro, combines genuine Scandinavian ethos with the format of a serviced bistro. Seasonality, locality and overall traditional flavours are elevated to deliver an offer of local craft beer, artisanal products and comforting recipes in a modern and unique atmosphere.
And coffee house chain, Espresso House, brings a world-class coffee experience to guests, a mission that made the brand the north star of millions of coffee lovers all over the Nordics.
