The meeting between United States President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin scheduled for July 16 will affect Helsinki airport’s operations due to high-level security measures and other special arrangements.
Measures will be taken to ensure that the summit causes as little disturbance to other air traffic as possible, said a press release issued by Finavia, the company that operates the country’s airports.
The special arrangements at the airport and its surroundings will be organized as a cooperative effort by multiple parties.
These arrangements will ensure that the requirements set by the delegations of both the countries are met, and that all other air traffic can operate normally.
The summit is expected to draw a lot of attention on a global scale. Finavia’s aim is for the airport to offer first-class service to all visitors and to promote a positive image of Finland.
The visibility over the airport may have to be reduced during the summit.
