Article Name[edit]

Why the name is Helsinki Airport? and it dosent even are really in Helsinki it's in vantaa , you can see the Lentokenttä article. The why it has helsinki name in it because helsinki is "jealous" to vantaa cuz helsinki has only the Malmi's airport. id prefer that the name would be "Helsinki - Vantaa's airport (in finnish, Helsinki - vantaan Lentoasema) Arttuh2010 (talk) 12:15, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

The naming of the airport was a hurdle for the construction of the airport for some time; since it is in the city of Vantaa (Vanda in Swedish) there was much opposition to calling the airport simply "Helsinki Airport" - the name Helsinki-Vantaa was considered acceptable. It is still the case that the airport is known as Helsinki-Vantaa in Finnish, Helsingfors-Vanda in Swedish. However, it appears that the English (and international) name has been changed to "Helsinki Airport" by the airport in the web site of the airport and other materials.

Busiest routest and destinations[edit]

Can anyone make a section: Busiest routes and destinations? I'm so bad to do anything like that, so somebody else can do it. Good source to do this: FINAVIA'S AIR TRAFFIC STATISTICS (pdf page 18) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.221.98.241 (talk) 18:46, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Finnair's Dubai flight is year-round, not seasonal[edit]

The flight that Finnair has from Helsinki to Dubai is a year-round flight. Make sure it does not get put in the seasonal column as that I keep seeing that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.89.35.142 (talk) 01:04, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

The flight is winter seasonal according to https://newsclient.omxgroup.com/cdsPublic/viewDisclosure.action?disclosureId=472094&lang=en unless you can provide a source saying that the flight has been converted to year-round. Snoozlepet (talk) 02:06, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
