At the beginning of May 2023, Finavia will start renovating runway 2 at Helsinki airport. Aircraft will therefore land in a different direction until mid-September. The renovation will have no impact on passengers.
The work on runway 2 is a two-year project. This summer, the northern end of runway 2 will be renovated first. The storm water drains and the electrical systems will also be overhauled. Preparations are already being made in April, which is why runway 2 remains closed from 7 am - 5 pm.
The cost of the renovation is about 8 million euros.
