Travelling from Helsinki Airport on August 28–29? Due to the international Triathlon World Championships in Finland, many passengers are departing from Helsinki Airport with special luggage, such as bikes. Read our tips for smooth travelling.

Many passengers at Helsinki Airport are travelling home from the Triathlon World Championships in Finland during Monday 28 AUG and Tuesday 29 AUG. We kindly ask passengers to reserve time for check-in and bag-drop, as many passengers are departing with special luggage. There might also be busy travel days towards the end of the week.

If you are travelling with luggage that goes into airplane cargo, we recommend you reserve more time than usual for check-in and bag-drop.

Bikes, skis, and golfbags are handled as special luggage at the airport. At Helsinki Airport, there are separate check-in desks in the Departures hall for special luggage. Also, your airline will provide more information on travelling with special luggage.

If you are travelling with carry-on luggage, we recommend that you check-in online at home before your flight. This way, you may proceed to security control directly upon arrival at the airport

Prepare for your flight in advance

When you are packing your bags, you may check Finavia’s packing instructions for information on what to pack in your carry-on luggage, and what you can pack in luggage travelling in the airplane cargo.

You may also book your parking in advance at Helsinki Airport. Booking in advance guarantees the best price. For example, parking hall P2 is great for larger vehicles and has direct lift access to the terminal.
