We have come into Helsinki by the Finnair bus in the past, but we understand that there is now a train from the airport into town. Where do you get this train after arriving into the Helsinki airport Vantaa?

Answer the question

When getting into arrivals, just follow the signage for the train. It should be pretty clear. It is the only train available. Also, remember to purchase a ticket before getting on the train from from one of the ticket vending machines by the escalators going down to the station or from the machine at the platform. You can take the train going either way as both directions end up at the Helsinki Central railway station (it is kind of a loop).

It's really easy to take the train so I'm sure you will find it also the tickets you can buy from.the same place where you take the train or download the app on your phone(hslapp). The tickets are the same that you can use for almost all trips you will make with public transport so that's why they are also quite affordable.

Walk towards Terminal 1 and just follow the train signs. There are ticket automats on the left side the aisle, you will see them when you walk. All trains leads to Helsinki Central railway station, same area where Finnair buses stops.

The HSL app is quite good for travelling info, routes and tickets. And yeah, from the passageway between terminals, there are signs for that nowadays. Doesn't really even matter that much which way you choose, 27 minutes to Centrum via Tikkurila, and 32 via Huopalahti.

You enter the train station from the hall (corridor?) between terminal 1 and terminal 2.

Pls note that you can't buy tickets on the train, you have to get them before you board.
