Staying hydrated before and during your flight is the best way to stay healthy while you travel.
Although you can’t bring liquids through security, consider carrying an empty water bottle with you to refill when you have the opportunity to do so.
Following feedback and requests from the traveling public, cold drinking water is now available at Helsinki Airport in various ways.
“A total of 12 washrooms in our main traffic areas now have cold water taps where passengers can refill their empty water bottles with cold drinking water free of charge. These automatic taps are located in 6 men’s washrooms and 6 ladies’ washrooms found near Gates 12–13, 21, 26, 29 and 32,” says Jukka Isomäki, Director at Finavia.
In Finland, all tap water is pure, fresh and drinkable all over the country. Finland’s tap water ranks among the best in the world, according to the United Nations.
A bottle of water for 1 euro
Passengers can also buy drinking water at two spots in the airside area. These selling points are located at Gates 13 and 26. Each bottle costs €1. If you pay 2 euros one euro will go as a donation to helping children in developing countries.
Sparkling water is available and later in the autumn, still water will be offered.
The 1 euro water bottle selling points are designed and carried out Finavia’s long-term partner in social responsibility Pland Finland and a Finnish family owned company Finn Spring.
Of course, passengers can also purchase bottled water at the airport’s various restaurants and cafés, and at R-kioski (Gates 29, 36 and Terminal 2, Departure floor).
Water is essential to flying and now, at last, you won’t go thirsty at the Helsinki Airport.
