Transportation from the airport and public transportation

The most convenient way to get to the city centre from the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport is by local train. The train station is located at the airport and both trains (I and P) will take you to the Helsinki Central Railway Station. The train ride will take approximately 45 minutes. A single regional train ticket for the required ABC zone is currently 4,10 euros. Information about the transportation can be found on Finavia’s website and the journey planner provided by the Helsinki Region Transport Authority (HSL). The taxi fare from the Helsinki Airport to the city center should be approximately 35 euros. We recommend using either Taksi Helsinki or FixuTaxi companies.

The most convenient way to buy HSL tickets is to download the HSL application on your phone: You can also buy tickets from a ticket machine found beside the railway/metro stations or outside tram stops, but please note that all stops do not have a ticket machine. Tickets can also be purchased at a slightly higher price from any R Kioski, Alepa or K-Market.

For finding the most convenient routes for public transportation, please use the HSL journey planner.
