Finavia outlines plans for Helsinki Airport expansion program

Finavia has unveiled its plans to expand Helsinki Airport under one roof rather than construct a separate terminal building.

Ville Haapasaari, director for Helsinki Airport, said, “This allows us to keep distances short and services easily accessible and to provide a customer friendly airport experience. This concept makes it easier to boost the number of transit passengers. Transferring from one gate to another will be easy and quick as it can be done in one terminal.

“Compared with the other models, the one-roof concept is the best option in terms of operational efficiency and customer friendliness. It is also an ecological solution because a single terminal reduces the need for services such as bus transport.”

There will be three stages to the development project with an estimated completion date of 2020. The first phase of the program is already underway after improvements were made to the retail facilities in Terminal 2.

Finavia says that the €900m (US$1.2bn) project will expand the terminal capacity to 20 million passengers per year and will add 70 new or refurbished shops and cafes. Construction of the new long-haul facilities and the additional spots for wide-bodied jets will start in 2016.
