Safety at Finavia

Safety is the cornerstone of Finavia’s corporate responsibility. High-quality safety work calls for attention to detail and the ability to master large totalities.

Safety is the starting point for Finavia’s operations under all circumstances. Responsibilities related to safety have been clearly defined in our organisation, and predictive safety work runs through all our activities.

At Finavia, safety stands for flight safety, securing civil aviation, occupational safety, cyber security and data security. These sectors make up so-called corporate safety, the purpose of which is to secure the continuity, safety and compliance of Finavia’s business under all circumstances.

Securing civil aviation includes security checks for passengers, items and staff, as well as apron safety. High-quality safety work to secure civil aviation complies with national and international regulations and enables smooth travelling, as congestion at security control is avoided, and navigating the airport is made pleasant.

Flight safety and the safety systems associated with it are largely based on national and international regulation. Finavia has effective standard procedures for ensuring safety in all situations.

Our safety processes include an analysis of procedures and continuous observation of activities. We are systematically developing our safety management practices and monitor both national and international developments, so that we can apply the best and safest operating practices. We are also actively seeking to influence regulation in matters related to creating and improving safety.

At Finavia’s airports, 0.5 million items per year and 200 items per day are removed from passengers at security control.


We collaborate closely with security officials and actively exchange safety information with ANS Finland, which is responsible for air traffic control ser
