Country´s airports operator Finavia has increased the number of charging stations for electric cars in the parking areas of Helsinki Airport, said Finavia in a press release on Monday.

There are nearly 350 charging stations for electric cars available for passengers in the parking areas.

“There are charging stations in each of our parking halls, so our customers can leave their electric car to charge in their preferred parking hall for the duration of the trip. The number of charging stations is the highest in the P2 parking hall, where the entire third floor is reserved for electric cars being charged,” said Jukka Isomäki, Head of Parking and Landside Traffic of Finavia at Helsinki Airport.

Last December, Finavia opened the new P1 Premium/P2 parking hall, which has about 250 charging stations in total. In P1 Premium, the charging stations are located at the front and the back of the Premium floor.

Charging stations are also available in the popular P3 and P5 parking halls: P3 has 30 charging stations and P5 has a total of 70 charging stations.

“Our parking areas at Helsinki Airport are located closest to the departure gate. Some are right next to the terminal. Customers can ensure they get the best price and access to their preferred parking area by booking their parking in advance,” Isomäki added.

The use of a charging station is priced according to energy consumption, €0.20 per kWh.
