Helsinki Airport issues a snooze update

Helsinki Airport (HEL) is proving its ‘Z’ factor with a new relaxation zone for happy nappers.

From September, passengers at Helsinki Airport can nod off while awaiting their flights in carefully designed rest facilities.

The new Relaxation Area – in Terminal 2 by gate 31 – will offer three dozing options.

Travellers can either take a free siesta in a chair or pay an hourly rate to rest in sleeping pods or tubes.

The zone's design is intended to evoke Finland’s natural attractions, such as its ice and northern lights. Acoustic walls and ceilings will ensure a peaceful environment.

Six Finnish SMEs are contributing products and services to the area, which is a pilot project from Vantaa Innovation Institute.
