SSP creates new menu and opens traditional Tapio Café at Helsinki Airport

Food and beverage operator SSP has collaborated with renowned Finnish chef Matti Jämsen to create a new menu for the Fly Inn Restaurant and Deli at Helsinki Airport in Finland, available from October 15, 2015, to January 6, 2016. SSP has also opened a new outlet called Tapio Café, designed to showcase the best of Finnish ingredients and design. 

The new menu at Fly Inn will include Finnish specialties such as cold smoked whitefish and rainbow trout, cucumber and horseradish mousse, and Åland organic lamb flavored with juniper berry, roasted onion and bear’s-garlic. The renowned Yalumba Wine Company has selected a complementary wine for each dish. 

The Tapio Café opened at the airport on October 10, 2015, and includes furniture from Finnish design company Artek, tableware from Iittala and fabrics from Marimekko. The new concept from SSP will provide travelers with light dining choices such as open rye salmon sandwiches, reindeer meatballs and Lapland cheese salad. There is also a range of ice creams and pastry products, as well as a monthly rotating guest microbrew beer. 

Marko Alander, general manager of SSP Finland, said, “We are very excited to work with Matti Jämsen, who is undoubtedly one of the leaders of our country’s culinary scene. Our new menu at Fly Inn, along with the opening of Tapio Café, will really showcase the best that Finland has to offer.” 

Elena Stenholm, vice president of Finavia, the airport operator, said, “It would be fair to say that Tapio Café will be one of the most Finnish cafes at Helsinki Airport. Finland will not only be represented in its ingredients and design, but also in its overall ambiance. Providing truly Finnish experiences to our passengers is one of our main objectives when it comes to planning our commercial offering. Tapio Café really helps us achieve this goal.”
