The driver was on the right time & on the right place waiting for us. He was very friendly and drove absolutely carefully and safety! I actually fall asleep during the trip... It was very good! Tourist

It was enjoyable and safe. Thank you very much. Asli
Driver was waiting when we arrived and he took us to the hotel. He was pleasant and an excellent driver we have no complaint about him at all. Thank you for your service. Peter Needham
The driver was nice and sincere. He helped us load the luggage too! Elaine Chan
It was really good, thank you so much! The English-speaking assistant was so friendly, and taught me a lot about Finland, and we even made a pit-stop to grab hot chocolate along the way because I was extremely thirsty. I really appreciate it. Alyssa Lie
We arrived early in the morning and caught up on sleep at the airport hotel. The driver found us, as we requested, 9 hours later in the arrivals hall. The vehicle was clean and comfortable with the requested child seats present Tim Warhurst
Driver was late and he blamed it on police check on the road. However the driver was very kind, instead of driving off, when he realised that we have difficulty getting access into the apartment, he offered to help us to call the apartment management because we were locked in. Hin chew Lam
Driver was very kind could speak English fluently and made trip more enjoyable by telling stories about the city. Gyorgy Philipp

Helsinki air hub is quite popular, especially among foreign travelers. If you need to know how to get from Helsinki Vantaa airport to Helsinki city center, you’ll find various options in the article.

Taxi and Transfer from Helsinki Vantaa Airport

There are three official taxi operators working at the air hub together with Vantaa Airport taxis. You will see cabs waiting at ranks outside both passenger terminals. The town of Vantaa, where the air hub is located, is 17 km far from the capital, so reaching the city downtown by car will take about 30 minutes. An average price for a taxi from Helsinki Vantaa Airport to the City center is from 40 to 50 euros. Also, you can use a shared taxi service with a fixed fare, which is apparently cheaper but provides some discommodity.

A private transfer is your choice if you value time or care about your children’s comfort if they travel with you. You can pre-book a transfer from Helsinki Vantaa Airport to city center for 42 euro at Kiwitaxi when planning your trip. The main benefit of transfers is your confidence and calm: a transfer driver will meet you and help with large luggage; you’ll reach the destination in peace with no need to respond to the uncertainty.

Public transport from Helsinki Vantaa Airport

The air hub railway station sends trains directly to the city every 15 minutes, and they cover the distance to the capital’s central train station in mere half an hour. This is a good and economy variant of transportation for people traveling light or demanding less comfort. Train ticket fares vary a lot depending on a validity period and can be purchased online in advance. If you buy a ticket at the station, you’ll have to pay a service surcharge.

Also, there are Finnair City Bus and the bus number 615 cruising between the air hub and Helsinki central train station. They regularly depart from the bus stops next to both passenger terminals. Online ticket booking is available on carriers’ official sites. Prices depend on a ticket type and destination farness. Keep in mind that buses make all scheduled stops, which will drag out your trip to some extent.
