Public transportation from Helsinki Airport

Short version: Helsinki Airport’s train station is located under the terminal. Local I and P trains operate between the Airport and Helsinki City Centre. The train ride takes about 30 minutes. Local train tickets can be purchased from HSL’s mobile app, or from the ticket machine at the train platform. Timetables, tickets and fares for local trains can be found on

The most convenient way to get to the conference venue from the city centre is by metro. Take the metro from the Central Railway Station (Rautatientori) metro station towards Tapiola or Kivenlahti (i.e., westward), and get off at the Koivusaari station, from which there is an approximately 1 km seaside walk to the conference venue (Hanasaari conference and cultural centre). Hotel Heymo 1 is located close to the Keilaniemi metro station (next station after Koivusaari). The Aalto University campus (where part of the conference will take place) is served by a dedicated metro station (unsurprisingly called Aalto University, the next station after Keilaniemi). The same ticket you bought for the local train is valid also for the metro.
