Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) handles flights to destinations throughout Europe and Finland, however it is not used by many budget airlines and therefore not many budget travellers arrive in Helsinki by air.

    Easy landing and very good introduction. They have 6 different languages so you will not get lost. Hold the shopping or food at tax free because just outside there is shop.

    It's the easiest airport to navigate. And of course I'm a bit partial, it is my home county. Hihi… *(",)*

    As You could expect in Finland - everything here is done well. From normal, working wifi, trough tasty croissants (however food rather expensive) to places for rest and well organised security control

    Easy to navigate and takes only a moment to transfer between gates. Smooth passport control and self-service works great! The airport itself gets boring after 30minutes

    Если вам необходимо переждать ночь между рейсами , то в аэропорту в хельсинки это вполне можно сделать. Есть бесплатный интернет, полно кафе и магазинов. На фото вечер, к утру люди спали даже на столе

    Power points are all European 2-pin configurations. Unfriendly to universal adapters as they do not secure well. More privacy cubicles with tables would be a plus.
