Flights to Istanbul

Helsinki-Vantaa Airport

Finding flights from Helsinki shouldn't be a hassle. When you book with Orbitz.com, you can rest assured that you get the best price on your flight. Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, also known as Helsinki Airport, is the primary airport in the city. It is located just over 10 miles from downtown, so you can get there in 20 to 30 minutes when traffic cooperates. Air Berlin, Blue 1, and Finnair are a few of the companies that handle flights from the airport, and several charter companies operate private flights as well.

Parking at the Airport

Helsinki Airport has several secure indoor parking garages. You will pay around $50 to park your car for one week, and if your vacation goes longer, the lot will charge only $10-20 more for an additional week of parking. The AirPort Bus offers free transportation from the lots to the terminals.

Cabs and Buses

When you need to reduce your travel costs, consider using a cab. Cabs cost less than $20, and you can arrange for the driver to pick you up anywhere in Helsinki or the surrounding area. Public buses are also available for $5 or less. The bus makes regular stops at the airport and lets you off a few feet from the entrance. Five rental car companies serve travelers at Helsinki Airport too, and Orbitz.com can help you arrange for a car when you book your flight.

Enjoy a Meal

Twenty different restaurants and eateries operate within the Helsinki Airport. Starbucks, My City Helsinki, Jungle Juice Bar, and Cafe Picnic provide both quick meals and places to sit down and enjoy your meal. Café Picnic and Coffee Spoon are open 24 hours daily, so coffee and freshly baked goods are available at any time..
