Convenient connections at Helsinki Airport
All Finnair flights operate with a convenient connection to Helsinki. It is only a half hour drive from the airport to the city center, so if you have a valid Schengen visa, then a transfer can be an excellent reason to get to know the Finnish capital better. The airline’s website offers many options for such acquaintance, from a gastronomic stroll through the city’s main restaurants to a ferry trip to Suomenlinna Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located near Helsinki.

A careful approach to the environment
Finland’s national airline is widely regarded as a pioneer in sustainable flying. In addition to being a leader in the Carbon Disclosure Project (an international program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions), Finnair was the first in Europe to use the new generation of environmentally friendly aircraft Airbus A350 XWB. These aircraft use fuel 25% more efficiently than the current generation of aircraft thanks to the reduction in weight due to the use of composite materials, the installation of new engines and improved aerodynamics. In addition to outstanding technical performance, the Airbus A350 XWB differs from previous generations by an innovative air ventilation system, a lighting system that allows passengers to more easily adapt to changing time zones, and spacious and comfortable cabins in economy and business classes. The A350 XWB of Finnair operates flights to Southeast Asia.
