Photo Review: Finnair Platinum Wing, Non Schengen Helsinki Vantaa (HEL)

Finnair Platinum Wing, Non Schengen Helsinki Vantaa Airport (HEL)

Date of visit: September 5, 2019

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit the newly opened Finnair Platinum Wing. The design is definitely much better than the old one and the size is also much bigger. It was nice they kept the Finnish Sauna and this time, it will be exclusive for those passengers inside the Platinum Wing. Unfortunately, the area where you get views of the tarmac is limited. Join me as I give you a tour of one of the nicest lounges in Europe.

Location: Non Schengen area, near gate 50
Access: Finnair Plus Platinum Lumo members; OneWorld Emerald members flying on flights operated by a OneWorld airline
Opening hours: Daily, 5:30am to 12am
