Record-Breaking Passenger Numbers at Helsinki Airport

Helsinki Airport reached a milestone, as passenger numbers reached 18 million, exceeding all expectations.

The greatest growth comes from flights between Europe and Asia, especially China. More and more foreign tourists choose Finland as their travel destination, to visit Helsinki or Lapland. Finavia is investing EUR900 million in the development and expansion of Helsinki Airport. The aim is to further strengthen the position of Helsinki Airport as a significant airline hub between Europe and Asia. The massive extension will allow the airport to serve 30 million passengers annually.

“[...] In 2019, we will open a stunning central Plaza in the long-distance flight area in terminal 2, including a brand new security control area, [...]and seven additional departure gates in the extension of terminal 1,” said Ville Haapasaari, airport director, Helsinki Airport.
