Transportation from the airport

Information on public transportation (trains and buses) between the Helsinki Airport and the city center can be found on the HSL website. Most travelers prefer the train. Please note that you need to buy a ticket (regional ticket) from an HSL ticket machine or HSL app before taking the escalator down to the platform. A single regional ticket for the ABC zones is currently 4,10 euros.

The most convenient way to buy tickets is to download the the HSL application on your phone: 

However, you can buy individual tickets from ticket machines found beside the railway/metro stations or outside tram stops (note: this is not always the case).

You can also buy tickets at a slightly higher price from any R Kioski, Alepa or K-Market.
