The second major step in the transformation of the Helsinki-Vantaa terminal extension has taken place with the opening of a new shopping area and a large My City Helsinki restaurant world.

"Finnair customers arriving at the terminal now have full access to a new shopping area and a nearly 400-seat restaurant world, which includes a video theatre for the smallest members of the family and an ice-cream bar. Excellent champagne and interesting wines are available from the bar, while new gate facilities cut transfer times," said Markku Remes, Finnair's Customer Experience Management Manager.

New stores in the extension section include Luxbag, Mulberry, Stockmann, M-Boxi, Aseman Kello and an R-kiosk newsstand.

New departure gates are progressively being put into use, as well as a seven line security check area for arriving transfer passengers, which will accelerate their passage to connecting flights.

The first phase of the new 150 million euro terminal opened in August, serving long-haul flight customers and those bound for other destinations outside the Schengen area, speeding up Finnair customers' connection-flight formalities and improving the general enjoyment of Finnair passengers at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport.

The final stage of the airport expansion will be completed on 11 December 2009 with the opening of a stylish 1,000 m2 Via Lounge. The services provided will include six private shower rooms, a snack buffet and a well-stocked Via wine bar, plus relaxation and working areas.

A Via Spa of nearly 600 sqm will also open. Via Spa will offer four different saunas: an Alpine-style spruce sauna, a stone sauna, a steam sauna and a traditional Finnish sauna with a view over a mineral water pool to the aircraft taxiways. Special spa treatments will be offered by expert staff based on the Haslauer spa concept.

These innovations are part of the joint goal-directed development work of Finnair and Finavia to provide increasingly efficient and pleasant transit services to passengers on routes between Europe and Asia.
