One HEL of a plan
We are making extensive investments to secure smooth travelling also in the future. With an ongoing 900 million EUR development programme in Helsinki Airport, we increase capacity for long-haul and transfer passengers as well as for wide-body aircraft and improve the traffic arrangements. The improvements allow us to serve up to 30 million passengers. The total area of the terminal in the early 2020s will be more than 250,000 square metres being able to accommodate more than 10 Finnish Parliament Houses. The aircraft parking areas and taxiways, will be renovated over an area of 450,000 square metres. The size of the construction site is equal to 90 football pitches.
We are on the leading edge of environmental sustainability. Since summer 2017, Helsinki Airport has been carbon neutral, and all our other airports followed in 2019, a year before than predicted. Nearly 60% of all aircraft landings at Helsinki Airport are employing continuous descent approach reducing aircraft fuel consumption, emissions and noise.
We aim to make our customers happy and satisfied in any way possible. We are continuously developing our services to ensure smooth travel experience to our passengers. Efficiency and safety are our key priorities to ensure minimum costs and flight delays. It’s a win-win situation.
