Port of Helsinki has taken a renovation project at Katajanokka ship terminal with the view to ensure modern and comfort journey for the passengers, said an official press release.

The vision of the Port of Helsinki is to become the world’s most functional port and to better meet the wishes of its passengers.

The terminal’s services, look and feel, guidance and waiting area comfort will be modernized. The renovations will be started in early September and they will be completed in phases during 2020.

The shipping terminal will continue to serve the Viking Line passengers during the entire renewal. To maintain smooth travelling, the work will be carried out in phases and special attention will be paid to functionality.

The terminal’s second floor will be renovated first, and the entrance floor’s renewal will start in January 2020. The goal is to finish the second floor by mid-February 2020 and the first floor by the end of 2020.

All surfaces, guidance and restroom facilities will be fully renovated. Childcare and accessibility will be better taken into account in the restrooms.

The furniture in waiting areas will be replaced and the number of mobile charging will be increased. The check-in gates will be digitalized.

Terminal renovation aims to enhanced passenger experience and operations: the enjoyable cruise starts from a functional and comfortable terminal. At Katajanokka, the terminal information desk will be located in the middle of the entrance area. The second floor will provide entertainment, experiences and travel information.
