Helsinki Airport alone served a record-breaking 10.1 million air passengers.
Joni Sundelin, director, Helsinki Airport, noted, “Growth of nearly 12 percent is sky-high. The direction is good not only at Helsinki Airport but also at our central regional airports.
The excellent figures not only reflect the favourable economic situation but also Helsinki Airport's strengthened position as the hub for air traffic between Europe and Asia.”
According to Finavia, the strong growth of passenger volumes at Helsinki Airport can be explained, not only with more frequent flights than before, but also because more airlines are flying larger wide-body aircraft.
