Demand at Helsinki Airport Grows Rapidly

Posted by | 11th October 2013 | Finland News

The number of passangers booking international connecting flights from Helsinki Airport has grown this year to 8% over the previous year. This percentage account for 1.4 million passangers in the first eight months of this year.

Ville Haapasaari, director of Helsinki Airport states that recent modern developments within the airport as well as the addition of new connections to Asia have both contributed to the growing demand in international transit flight bookings this year.

Ville believes the airport can be further developed and can be transformed into a major international hub as more and more passangers choose Helsinki Airport to catch connecting flights between Europe and Asia.

Strong passenger services is among the developments that have recently been made and plans are in place for a new display system which will feature better, larger displays. These are currently needed in order to reduce the time required for flight transfers.

Another suggested modification is the addition of a range of languages to include Chinese and Japanese in order to cater for the numerous Asian travellers who choose Helsinki airport.

The increase in number of passport control booths has also been planned so that the entire passport checking process is ready to handle larger volumes of travellers.
