Helsinki Airport in Finland is set to open a new Plaza Premium Lounge in February next year at its non-Schengen terminal.

The new lounge will be opened as part of the terminal’s extension plan. The operator for the lounge has been selected through a public tendering process.

Finnish government-owned company Finavia manages Helsinki Airport.

Helsinki Airport Commercial Services vice-president Elena Stenholm said: “At Helsinki Airport we work hard together with our partners to ensure a smooth, high-quality travel experience for our customers.

“Plaza Premium Lounge is a wonderful new addition to our ever-growing range of services, giving our 20 million annual passengers a possibility to relax before, after or between flights at non-Schengen terminal.”

“Finland is a major transit hub offering the shortest route between Europe and Asia.”

Once operational, the new lounge will offer a number of services along with pay-in lounge services in collaboration with Plaza Premium Lounge to travellers departing, transiting and landing at the airport.

The facility will include comfortable seating, a bar, a live kitchen, recharging stations, shower facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi, computer workstations, among others.

Plaza Premium Group business development director Jonathan Song said: “Our decision to expand to Helsinki Airport was a natural one. Finland is a major transit hub offering the shortest route between Europe and Asia.

“We look forward to extending our airport hospitality expertise in our third market in Europe. This partnership will be another major milestone in achieving our global ambitions.”

Currently, Plaza Premium Lounge operates in more than 40 international airports including London Heathrow, Abu Dhabi, Brisbane, Sydney, Rome, Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, New Delhi and more.
