    Finnair City Bus

    Finnair City Bus

    The Finnair bus service is excellent, it takes you from both terminals at Helsinki-Vantaa airport into the heart of Helsinki City Centre, terminating outside of the main railway station.

    The service has a limited number of stops - from the city centre to the airport, it stops only once behind the Scandic Continental and Crowne Plaza Hotels. On the way back from the airport there are a few more defined stops.

    Total journey time is around 35 to 40 minutes; the cost is 5,90€ each way. They accept cash and major credit cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express and Diners Club International).

    NOTE: If you have a valid Helsinki Card you will receive a discount on this fare.

    Anyone can get Finnair Bus to Vantaa

    Finnair bus at Central Station

    We got this bus from Central Station (Elielinaukio), Platform 30 to Vantaa Airport. This is a good choice because the travel time is 35 minutes aprox. with only 1 stop at the Scandic Hotel Continental (north of the city). Buses operates every 30 minutes and the fare was 5,20€ (2006).

    Cheaper than a taxi and faster than other public transport ways.

    If you need to move from Helsinki airport till the center, i really suggest to take the Finnair bus.

    For around 5 Euro you can load your baggages, jump on and be in the city or around your hotel in 30 min. Ask the driver if your hotel is a planned stop.

    I loved my trip on Finnair. I left from New York's JFK airport, which is fantastic since Finnair offers direct flights to Helsinki. The trip takes around 8 hours non-stop but time always goes quickly for me on airplanes. While Finnair's planes do not offer a lot of extra gadgets sometimes found on the 'brand name' airlines, they do not have to since they are not really engaged in a hyper-competition of sorts, but their planes are certainly adequate, and first things first here, safe. They also offer some nice windows where one can take pictures of the sky such as the ones I've taken. I booked early enough in advance to consider this flight travelling on a budget.

    Finnair Bus to Airport

    Getting to the Helsinki City Center is easy with the Finnair Bus. The bus ride to or from the airport is around 35 minutes and costs 4.90 EUR.

    In addition to the Finnair bus, there are other public buses that run regularly to the city. Just ask Information!

    Finnair buses

    by biggeorge Written Jun 1, 2004

    Despite being more expensive than normal domestic buses these buses have the advantage of only stopping once and being impossible to miss, just go out of the airport and turn left. about 5 Euros from the airport to the station.

    Our Finnair Airbus

    I lately went to Helsinki by Finnair from Düsseldorf. I was surprised how nice their planes are ... comfy seats, enough space and drinks, newspapers.... these days all this isn't "normal" anymore I think. And if you are lucky you can get some great deals with them too....
