Cheap Flights to Helsinki

Helsinki (Finnish) or Helsingfors (Swedish) is the capital of Finland. Founded in 1550, the "Daughter of the Baltic" has been the Finnish capital since 1812, when it was rebuilt by the tsars of Russia along the lines of a miniature St. Petersburg, a role it has played in many a Cold War movie. Today, Helsinki pulls off the trick of being something of an international metropolis while still retaining a small-town feel. The best time to visit is in summer, when Finns peel off their overcoats and flock to outdoor bars and cafes to enjoy the sunshine. The Gulf of Finland lies to the south, while the posh suburban municipality of Espoo, with the embedded tiny enclave of Kauniainen, is to the west. The more industrialized municipality of Vantaa is to the north. Beyond these three, the suburbs rapidly give way to farms and forests, most notably Nuuksio National Park at the intersection of Espoo, Vihti and Kirkkonummi. The City of Helsinki Tourist Information Office is a fount of information with helpful, multilingual staff.

Check out flights, trip tickets, air line specials, low prices on air travel fares and more at AirGorilla.com (end of ad). They also sell tickets to museums and sightseeing tours. The city is officially bilingual, with a 86% Finnish-speaking majority and a visible 6% Swedish minority. In practice most people speak both and English as well, and it's not unusual to meet people who speak four languages or more. All international and domestic flights land at the compact, modern and airy Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport (IATA: HEL), which is 20 kilometers to the north of the city. There are two adjacent terminals, connected by a short walkway. If you need a place to sleep between flights, there are several reasonable hotels in or very near the airport, such as Airport Hotel Bonus Inn, Cumulus Airport Hotel, Hilton Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, and the Scandic Gateway-Helsinki Airport. From some points in Europe, it may be cheaper overall to fly with Ryanair to Tampere (2 hours away by train) or even to Tallinn, Estonia, a short ferry ride away. For general aviation (small planes) the Helsinki-Malmi Airport (IATA: HEM) is available, with fuel and customs facilities available at the airport. Copterline halted their scheduled flights between Helsinki and Tallinn in December 2008. All long-distance trains throughout Finland and the Russian cities of Moscow and Saint Petersburg terminate in the heart of the city at the Rautatieasema (Central Railway Station). This station also provides easy interchange to the metro and tram lines. For travel from St. Petersburg (Russia), Russian minibuses depart from the Oktyabrskaya Hotel (opp Moskovsky train station) around 10 PM and arrive behind Tennispalatsi at Etelainen Rautatiekatu 8, one block away from Kamppi, early in the morning. Helsinki is well connected with ferry services to Tallinn (Estonia) and Stockholm (Sweden), and there are limited services to Travemunde & Rostock, Germany as well as Gdynia, Poland. Scheduled services to St. Petersburg (Russia) or the Baltics no longer operate (as of 2009), although there are occasional summer cruises.
