Helsinki-Vantaan lentoaseman liikkeet.
Departures and arrivals halls, security control, shops, restaurants and services have been revamped. The new Helsinki Airport is ready for you.

Check out our list of things that have changed:

  1. Departures hall

All passengers depart via Helsinki Airport’s new and stunning departures hall. The check-in areas, bag drop, currency exchange and security control are all located in the departures hall. The departures hall’s iconic wooden ceiling and large windows are Finnish design at its best.

  1. Security control

Helsinki Airport’s security control uses next-generation technology. There is no need to remove electronics and liquids from bags for scanning. Passengers can carry up to two litres of liquids through security control. There is a separate line for families with children.

  1. A wide range of services

A variety of new shops, restaurants, kiosks, cafes, lounges and much more have opened at the airport! Moomins, Marimekko, Balmuir, Iittala, Suomalainen Kirjakauppa, Alepa, and Relove are examples of popular Finnish brands. Two food courts, one in the Arrivals hall and one at gates 22-26 have opened.

  1. Baggage claim hall

Helsinki Airport’s new, spacious baggage claim hall has even more baggage carousels. All passengers arrive at the same baggage claim hall. The hall has a Duty Free shop and an arrival service.

  1. Arrivals hall

In the airport’s arrivals hall, passengers are greeted by the nature diorama Luoto. A wide range of services, from kiosks to restaurants and lounges, is also available to passengers and visitors to the airport. The arrivals hall combines various modes of transport: parking and short-term parking, rental cars, a taxi station, a train station, a bicycle parking area and a bus station.

  1. Parking

Two new parking halls, P1 Premium and P2, have opened at Helsinki Airport. Both have direct access to the terminal via lifts, which are only a few steps away from security control. In addition, there is a new short-term parking area in front of the arrivals hall for picking up passengers.
