Getting into Helsinki

Train is the best

The newly opened train connection to the airport has overtaken the bus as the handiest way to get to the city.

Train

You can ride the train into Helsinki on the heart-shaped Ring Rail line. Trains leave every 10 minutes at peak times, and the journey time to Helsinki Central Station (Helsingin päärautatieasema-Helsingforscentralstation) is around 30 minutes. The train also stops at all stops on the route, including Aviapolis, the new and nearby business park. 

You can even travel directly to St Petersburg from the airport, or take the eight-minute journey to Tikkurila station to connect to long-distance trains.

Cost: EUR 5 one-way to Helsinki. This regional ticket is valid for 90 minutes after purchase, and can be used on all of HSL network in Helsinki, Vantaa, Espoo and Kauniainen.
Buying tickets: Ticket machines on the platform or from the conductor on the train (cash or card) 
Location: The train station entrance is on the corridor between the two terminals

Bus

If you want to travel straight from the airport building, Finnair City Bus leaves from both terminals every 15-20 minutes. The journey takes approximately 30 minutes to the central station.

Cost: EUR 6.30

You can also take the public bus number 615 and save even more money. The journey takes about 40 minutes.

Cost: EUR 4 

Taxi

If you'd rather the comfort of your own car, and are happy to pay the price, you can get into the city in about 30 minutes by taxi. Remember, it takes the same amount of time as the train, for approximately 1/10 of the train ticket's price.

Cost: EUR 45-50
Location: Taxi stands outside Arrivals areas of terminals

Get through the queues faster

Prepare yourself for security

The airport’s security queues can be long during busy periods, so it’s best to get ready in advance by emptying your pockets and taking your laptop and liquids out of your bag. Helsinki security has an area where passengers can do this before getting in the queue, which means you can whizz by if you’re already prepared or only have a few items.
