Loved the free sleeping pods!

(Guest Review by Eva) Got to Helsinki airport at 9 PM, my next flight was the following day at 8 AM, so I had the whole night ahead. I was flying in the Schengen area and stayed overnight in the Terminal 2 transit area. I had read about the sleeping pods installed at Helsinki Airport and was curious to try them, so I looked for them. In the Schengen transit area they are located beyond gate 30, you walk towards gate 31 on the right by the passport control checkpoint. There is the whole relaxation area with 14 sleeping pods, but it was cordoned off and with a checkout cashier point, but nobody was there. Just outside this area, there are three free sleeping pods, they were all empty. My boyfriend and I got two of them, shortly afterwards a mother with a kid came by and put the kid to sleep in the third free one. Getting there fairly ear continued >>

Rude customer service at international duty free

(Guest Review by Maxim) Terminal 2 for international flights is not too bad, even though a little small and can get easily crowded. Free wifi helps! But the customer service at the first duty free shop as you come through security has to be the worst! The Finns serving you there suck big time. First one guy tells us to go to another till while he etabds there texting on his phone. Then considering we spent over 100 euros on their over-priced product s (rip off), the other guy didn't have the decency nor professionalism to pack our items. His overall attitude stunk! Shit service for a duty free shop.

Helsinki Airport Review

(Guest Review) I got connection flight in 23 hours and I did not have Shengen visa, so I had to stay in airport, in international area. This is the best airport I have ever been. During the night, it is empty and very quiet. Coaches are comfortable, wifi hotspot is available, you can charge your phone almost everywhere.

Helsinki Airport Review

by web-administrator (March, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) There are new sleeping pods available between terminals 1 and 2. Some of those are free to use, others 10 per hour. (Yikes!) Those you didn't score the free sleeping pods can go catch some z's at Kainuu room, near gate 30. It's a quiet room with a green carpet to lounge on, and there are two 'sun-tanning beds' that are great for sleeping! There's even a free book swap for avid readers.

Helsinki Vantaa Airport

by web-administrator (January, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(GUEST) Outside of its busy hours, Helsinki Airport is a quiet airport. Handling a big part of the Asian-Europe flights, it guarantees a multicultural yet Finnish look of things, good food & drinks, many shops (my personal favourite being the Moomin shop), cozy sleeping area with actual beds, beautiful views to the runway from both terminals and - the best-selling part - a free Wifi access. Traveling around Europe I've seen fancier lounges, bigger duty free shops and those huge A380 planes. On those aspects Helsinki Airport still has room to evolve. But nowhere in the world have I seen luggage handled as fast as they do at Helsinki Airport.
