Helsinki-Malmi Airport is the second busiest airport in Finland by flight operations and a built cultural environment of national significance. It is one of the world’s best preserved civil airports from the early days of commercial aviation.
Malmi Airport offers more than a million people in the capital region an international airport for light traffic, an active recreation and hobby oasis, a venue for public aviation events and a chance to get educated into aviation professions. The historically valuable milieu also serves with distinction the Border Guard, the Rescue Department, the Air Force and the Police. In addition, the airport is a spacious nature and bird oasis in northeastern Helsinki.
The future of Helsinki-Malmi Airport is threatened by ambitions to turn the area into blocks of apartment houses.
