Review: Finnair Premium Lounge, Helsinki Airport Terminal 2, Non-Schengen (HEL)
Date of visit: January 29, 2015
Location: Terminal 2 Non-Schengen airside between gates 36 & 37
Opening hours: 6am to 12mn
Access: One World Emerald cardholders
Note: The use of Finnish Sauna is also for passengers who have access to the Finnair Lounge Non-Schengen.
It was my first time to visit this lounge last month and I thought it was a very nice lounge. Comparing it to the Finnair Lounge Non-Schengen located on the other side of the reception, this lounge is much smaller although the food and drinks are much better. Since access to this lounge is only for One World Sapphire and Emerald cardholders, it really gives the feeling of exclusivity. I was the only passenger in the lounge during my short visit although a few more came later. I don't think I could compare this to the Lufthansa First Class Terminal nor to Thai Airways First Class Lounge but this lounge is the best lounge in Scandinavia, in my opinion.
