Helsinki Airport (IATA: HEL, ICAO: EFHK) also known as Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, is the primary airport serving the city of Helsinki. Situated approximately 17 kilometers north of the city center, it is one of the busiest airports in Northern Europe and a major hub for both domestic and international air travel. Airport serves as Finnair’s main hub and plays a significant role in the airline’s history.

In the 1950s, Finnair became the first airline to operate regularly scheduled flights over the North Pole. This unique route, known as the “Polar Route”, significantly reduced the flying time between Europe and Asia. Helsinki Airport, due to its strategic location, served as a crucial stopover point for these transpolar flights.
