Helsinki Airport has launched a large-scale epxansion project aimed at preparing the facility to process 20 million annual passengers by 2020. These improvements are scheduled to take several years.
In Europe, Helsinki Airport has the most routes to Japan and comes in fifth in the number of Asian departures per week. The airport's direct routes fly people to 135 destinations around the world.
During the renovation, the airport’s Scandinavian style will be highlighted. Free Wi-Fi, art galleries and sleeping pods will also be available. In 2015, the airport went through its largest service revamp to date, as 70 new or renewed cafés, restaurants and shops were opened.
