Helsinki Airport Reviews

★★★★☆
Small airport and simple to use. Good services. The people are really nice. You can be in the runway ready to depart and still have wifi signal from the airport building. Amazing.
- Fernando

★★★★☆
Very nice airport. Clean and tidy and everything is well organized. Passport control was a breeze thanks to the automated machines. The wifi is great!
- Alexander Stålhammar

★★★★☆
One of the best lounges in the world "[email protected]" Lounge at Helsinki Airport. Automatic passport control, the most advanced I have ever tried.
- Jonas Tryggvason

★★★★★
Very clean, compact and efficient. It took only 10-15 minutes by train from the neighborhood of western Helsinki I stayed in, which means about 30 minutes from the central railway station. All the staff are super kind and speak fluent English that you will have no problem with communication in case you need help. Oh, and the moment you have an absolute silence as soon as you enter the express train, you realize you are now in Finland. :-D
- Chihe Choi

★★★★☆
It is great airport with superb WiFi, but it was definitely overcrowded and the check-in took over an hour, though we have already checked-in online and just needed baggage drop.The capacity limit seems to be already broken and the security could be improved - didn't feel safe with the huge crowds right after the escalators in the departure halls.
- Ladislav Adamek

★★★★☆
Helsinki is one of my absolute favorite airports in Europe. It's compact, has all the needed amenities and more. In addition the arrival is always painless.
- Niki Matilainen

★★★★☆
Didn't spend much time on this airport, but the first impression is that is good airport with good facilities. The wi-fi connection was good, also there is great connection with Helsinki by bus.
- Anastasia

★★★★★
A very fast and easy airport to navigate. Very expensive, but good quality products. Overall, really nothing to complain about.
- Miika Turunen
