Helsinki Airport: 20 Million Passenger Milestone Surpassed

The 20 millionth passenger of the year visited Helsinki Airport. This historical milestone is the climax of the unprecedented growth in the past few years. The current development programme budgeted at EUR1 billion helps the airport to prepare for serving up to 30 million passengers a year.

Air travel via Helsinki Airport has been growing rapidly over the past few years. A historical milestone was surpassed today as the 20 millionth passenger of this year visited the airport.

“This is a momentous occasion for Helsinki Airport and the entire Finnish aviation industry,” said, Joni Sundelin, director, Helsinki Airport. “The number of passengers has been growing faster than we predicted a few years ago. Back then, we talked about 20 million passengers in 2020. However, we hit that mark already this year.”

Up to 21 million passengers are expected to visit Helsinki Airport by the end of the year. The corresponding figure of 2017 was 18.9 million passengers.
