Also known as the ‘Daughter of the Baltic’, Helsinki is the charming capital of Finland. It’s less than a three-hour flight from Heathrow (LHR) to Helsinki Airport (HEL), so you will be enjoying the stunning architecture of the city in no time.
A beautiful place at any time of the year, its seasons are dramatic – from busy summer days lazing by the beach to bitterly cold winter months when warm and cosy cafés become a welcome respite. Helsinki has distinctive small town feel, even though it is the capital, and this can be felt in the welcoming nature of the locals. Enjoy a leisurely meal or drink at the harbour in the heart of the city with new friends, after a day of meandering the streets in awe of the delightful Art Nouveau buildings and sculptures. A holiday in Helsinki offers a cosmopolitan and multicultural break where east meets west.
Our flights from London Heathrow (LHR) to Helsinki Airport (HEL) take just less than three hours. Our attentive cabin crew are on hand at all times to make sure your flight is comfortable and relaxed. Two flights depart from Heathrow daily, enabling you to reach the sparkling city of Helsinki with ease. There are also several flights a day with our codeshare partner, Finnair, making it even simpler to arrive in Finland.
When you fly with British Airways, you can choose a departure date that suits you and you’ll enjoy a safe and comfortable journey. Our cabin crew will be happy to help you with anything you need, so you can simply relax. Choose to fly with hand baggage only or pick a price that includes a 23kg checked baggage allowance and free seat selection 24 hours before you fly. You can also buy delicious food from British food favourite M&S, on board all flights from/to London Heathrow and London Gatwick. For your convenience we will only accept payment by credit/debit cards on board, and Executive Club Members can pay with Avios via the British Airways app.
Once you've touched down in Helsinki, the best way to get to the city centre is by taxi as Helsinki airport lies 20km north of the city. You can get either a private hire taxi, which costs around €40-50, or you can get a fixed priced taxi, which is shared with others but is cheaper. Buses also run regularly to the heart of the city, the Finnair Bus is just €6.20 and takes around 20-30 minutes, or try the number 615 to the central train station. You could also hire a car to explore Helsinki in your own time.
