Finavia Corporation will renovate Helsinki Airportís main runway during the summer.

 The runway to be renovated is the oldest runway at Helsinki Airport. It was put into use in 1952 when the airport was opened for traffic.

The renovation, carried out between May and early August, will reduce Helsinki Airport's runway capacity but is not expected to have a major impact on traffic volumes during the summer.

All flights with wide-body aircraft and the highest-volume routes in Europe will operate as usual, however there maybe some schedule changes to routes with the lowest passenger numbers.

" We have held meetings with airlines since autumn, planning summer schedules and finding solutions to possible timetable changes. Numerous analyses on how to ensure smooth operations during the renovation have been made," said Finaviaís Heini Noronen-Juhola, Vice President, Aviation & Safety at Helsinki Airport.

In addition to Helsinki Airport, Finavia is also renovating runways at Ivalo, Vaasa and Kittilš airports.
