Helsinki Airport’s wide range of services will be topped up with a new pay-in lounge Plaza Premium Lounge opening in February 2019 at the non-Schengen terminal as a part of the terminal expansion.
The new lounge operator at the Finnish gateway was selected through a public tendering process by airport operator Finavia as it gets set to opens a new central plaza.
Helsinki Airport vice president of commercial services, 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.”
The new Plaza Premium Lounge Helsinki will offer lounge services and facilities for travellers departing, transiting and arriving at Helsinki Airport. It will feature comfortable seating, a live kitchen, a bar, shower facilities, recharging stations, complimentary Wi-Fi, computer workstations, and a kid zone for family travellers to relax and unwind before their travel journey at Helsinki Airport.
