Voice of Travelers to Helsinki

Airfare ticket to Helsinki

I needed to travel to Helsinki for a wedding of my relative who had lived in Helsinki for several years. I booked a ticket last minute with Air Canada. The ticket to Helsinki was reasonably priced even if I bought it just days before my travel to Helsinki. The ticket agent offered me the service of fast transfer from Helsinki airport to the city by a taxi service, but a friend was my relative was picking me up at Helsinki airport, so I declined. Air Canada gave a good service and when I decided to change the ticket date for returning back from Helsinki, my ticket agent did not take any extras. I recommend Air Canada for reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to Helsinki.

Visiting Helsinki for a film festival

I visited Helsinki last year for a film festival. I was invited to the festival of Helsinki by a good friend whose work is connected, and his enterprise paid for our trip to Helsinki. Thanks to these circumstances, we flew to Helsinki with Finnair for free, and the ticket was actually booked for the first class from Berlin to Helsinki. The ticket was probably quite expensive. I did not have to pay for the ticket though, it was pre-arranged for me. The service aboard Finnair was very good, including food and drinks. Helsinki is a great city and in the free time bought a ticket for hop-on bus to do a city tour. I would love to attend the film festival next year as well, even if I pay for my plane ticket to Helsinki myself.
