Although the number of passengers has decreased because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we still recommend passengers to arrive at the Airport in good time before their flight. Check-in procedures may take more time than normally due to different Covid-19 related document checks.


Please follow the check-in time provided by your carrier or travel organiser. Especially during the busiest times, it is good to plan ahead and come to Helsinki Airport in good time before your departure. As check-in operations and requirements vary by airline, do check with your airline representative or the ground handling agent for more information.


You may encounter congestion at Helsinki Airport if your flight departs in the morning between 6 am and 8.30 am, in the afternoon between 2 pm and 5.30 pm, in the beginning of summer, Christmas and Easter holidays or during school autumn and winter breaks.
