The first signs of Helsinki Airport’s terminal extension will be visible to passengers at the end of the year when demolition work on the P1/P2 parking lot will start.
The expansion includes a new entrance to the terminal with arrivals and departures halls and new public transportation links. Construction activities will affect passenger movements from spring 2019.
Tuomo Lindstedt, Finavia’s project manager for Terminal 2’s expansion and change process, said, “Unfortunately, the expansion project is set to affect the movement of many passengers. We’ve been designing temporary solutions with great care and will inform them about these as early as possible. All these solutions are designed to last long, and they will not change a lot during the expansion work.”
The core of the terminal extension is a brand-new building that will be built in front of the existing terminal. In the future, the building will have all the functions for arriving and departing passengers that are in the current Terminal 2, supplemented by a travel center connecting various means of public transportation.
