What year was Helsinki Airport founded?

The airport, which was built for the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki, has close to 25.000 personnel working in 1.500 companies. Helsinki Airport’s minimum transit time of 35 minutes is one of the shortest transit times in Europe, so private jet traffic is also experienced a lot.

A new aerodrome for Helsinki began to be planned in the 1940s after the old airport in Malmi was unable to handle the increasing number of passengers and the facilities proved unable to handle heavier aircraft. The airport was temporarily opened in July 1952 for that year’s Summer Olympics in an area belonging to the city of Vantaa.

On October 26, 1952, charter flights were diverted to the new airport. The aerodrome originally had a single runway, with a second runway built four years later in 1956. Regular jet flight operations began in 1959. A new passenger terminal opened in 1969, while the first transatlantic service to New York began on May 15, 1969.
