Snowfall is likely to delay flight operations at Helsinki Airport on Saturday and Sunday, said Finavia, the company operates country’s airports on Friday, quoting weather forecast.

The authority asked the passengers to follow notifications of their own airlines.

The possible snowfall during the stipulated period may compel the air navigation company Finntraffic and its air traffic control to restrict the number of arrivals and departures for safety reasons.

This can have an effect on departing flights and baggage handling.

The ground handling companies and airlines at Helsinki Airport will do their best to assure that aircraft de-icing and baggage handling processes run as well as possible.
