Helsinki-Malmi Airport is Helsinki’s international general aviation airport. 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 future of Helsinki-Malmi Airport is threatened by the City of Helsinki’s intention to turn it into a residential area. No binding decisions have been made yet, so it’s worthwhile to contact your City Councillor and tell why the Airport is important as it is. Come get acquainted with Helsinki-Malmi Airport and help keep it in aviation use!
