The outdoor section of the Helsinki Airport scenic terrace reopened

Friends of aviation welcome the reopening of the observation deck’s outdoor terrace that has been closed during the summer.

You can observe aircraft landing and taking off daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. The traffic is liveliest in the morning and in the afternoon.

The scenic terrace has two parts: the outdoor and indoor terrace. The warm indoor terrace has a soft drink vending machine, a photo exhibition of Helsinki Airport past and present, as well as displays for arrivals and departures. The outdoor terrace will be closed during the winter for safety reasons.

The scenic terrace is located approx. 150 metres away from Terminal 2 on top of the blue glass office building. You can reach it by foot from the exit of Terminal 2 arrivals lobby (Arrivals 2B) through a covered walkway towards Hotel Hilton and by following the windsock signs.

The nearest parking areas are P1, P2 and the quick parking area T2. Information on buses and trains, is available on our website.

The outside terrace is closed during winter, but you can watch the planes from the inside terrace. The outside terrace is kept open for as long as possible from early spring to late autumn weather permitting. When there is ice on the outside terrace only the inside terrace is open.
