Finavia to assess new Helsinki Airport terminal facilities

Finavia has an ongoing development programme at Helsinki Airport, worth of almost EUR 1billion, which will expand the airport and increase its capacity, the company said.

With the development programme, Finavia is prepared to serve 20 million passengers at Helsinki Airport per year in 2020.

The first part of the new extension, the south wing, is now ready for testing and waits for the final touch before being opened for passengers.

Finavia will arrange a unique deployment test in a role play spirit at Helsinki Airport on Thursday 6 July 2017. The purpose of the deployment test, which is the largest in the history of the airport, is to ensure before deployment that the terminal operations and processes at the south wing work as they should.

Finavia intends to open the south wing for passengers during summer 2017. The whole airport extension is scheduled to be ready in 2020.
