    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....

    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!

    Anyone can get Finnair Bus to Vantaa

    by ape_huva Updated Mar 30, 2007

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Flying to

    by lina112 Written Aug 15, 2014

    We booked a packages fly plus hotel and we flew with finnair. There are daily flights from Málaga to helsinki with Finnair and Norwegian to Helsinki-Vantaa airport. The journey from malaga takes 4 hours and 30 minutes. They serve free soft drinks during the flight and a free meal, a sandwich on the way to Helsinki and a salad on the back to Málaga and before landing they give a fazer chocolate. The crew is very nice and at las one of the crew has to speak the language of the destination of the flight.

    Reservamos un paquete vuelo mas hotel y el vuelo era con finnair. Desde Málaga hay vuelos diarios tanto con finnair y norwegian hacia el aeropuerto de Vantaa. El viaje desde Málaga dura 4 horas y media. Sirven refrescos gratis y una comida, en la ida fue un bocadillo y a la vuelta una ensalada y antes del aterrizaje te dan un bombón de la marca Fazer. El personal muy atento y en cada vuelo al menos uno de ellos debe de hablar el idioma de destino.

  • Great airline!

    by Maideneer Written Jan 6, 2007

    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.

    Stunning No, there isn't someone on the wing... Beautiful Taking off in Finland I think this is over Norway

    Helsinki is served by a multitude of airlines, with direct connections from all the Finnish destinations, from major European cities, from North-America, from Middle East and from Asia.

    Finnair is the only airline connecting Helsinki on a direct line to Tokyo, Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai, Hongkong, Bangkok and Singapore in Asia, New York and Miami in the US.

    There is more competition from the following cities using direct connections:

    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.
