Major redevelopment of Helsinki Airport
Ramboll’s Aviation team is part of a consortium that will transform Helsinki Airport. The project will ensure that the airport can keep up with passenger growth and will be finished by 2022.
Phase 1 of the redevelopment are the extensions for the long-haul flights which will be completed by 2019. The focus of the work will then shift to Terminal 2, where a new entrance area plus arrival and departure halls will be established. Airport parking and public transport connections will also be improved.
“We are bringing our multidisciplinary design expertise to the project as part of the consortium. We are putting every effort into creating high-quality plans and ensuring smooth cooperation in the design and construction phases”, says Hannu Nissinen of Ramboll.
Future proofing the airport
Terminal 2 will have a new section for check-in, security checks, luggage deposit and passenger reception. Once the project is complete, the current departure and arrival halls will be part of the Schengen gate area.
The new part of Terminal 2 will have a surface area of 40,000 square metres, and the existing arrivals and departure areas that are being upgraded will have an area of 35,000 square metres.
In accordance with the project schedule, the new parking facility in front of terminal 2 will be completed in 2020. The departure and arrival halls of the new section will be completed in 2021, and the upgrades on the terminal will be completed in 2022.
