  • Welcome to Helsinki-Malmi Airport

Helsinki-Malmi Airport is Helsinki’s international general aviation airport and the most important hub of the general aviation network in Finland. It serves pilot training, professional, business and recreational aviation, and offers an extensive range of aviation services from aircraft and helicopter maintenance and repairs to aircraft rental. 

The Airport is open for everyone to visit, and in ordinary circumstances the busy aviation activities can be followed at close range. Since spring 2021, though, the runway has been temporarily closed due to the eviction measures taken by the City.

In March 2016, Helsinki-Malmi Airport was selected as one of the 7 Most Endangered Cultural Heritage Sites in Europe, so it’s well worth getting to know. In its recent report (2021), the international ICOMOS organization presented Malmi Airport side by side with e.g. Notre Dame of Paris as one of the world’s most endangered cultural heritage sites.
