Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After holiday in Helsinki we had to go to the airport, were looking for bus transport which would take 1 hour, we were told do take the train which is much faster.
Did go to the CS and in a kiosk we did by tickets ABC to the airport at 4,60Euro p.p. when you go to the platform go rigth an some may be 100 meters and you will find the trains.
You can not by tickets on the train.
It is a new and very modern train which during the day leave every 15 minuts, there are some stop on the tour, but you a inform well.
It did take 1/2 hour to the airport and you arrive under ground the airport.
We will for sure use this train from and to the airport in the future

This was a really easy way to go from and to the airport. Easy to buy tickets on the ticket machine too. Just remember to buy the right tickets. If you are going from the airport to Helsinki city center, you have to buy the "A-B-C" ticket. We first bought the "A-B" tickets, but that is for a shorter distance or something. So we had to buy new tickets. And it wasnt possible to buy a single "C" ticket to add to the "A-B" tickets we already bought. The "A-B-C" ticket is about 5 euro and its much cheaper than taxi. And its only about 30 min from the airport to Helsinki City center. When we arrived the central station we just used google maps to find the hotel. When taking the train back again, the ticket machine and the train to the airport wasnt inside. We had to first go in to the central station and then go out on the other side. We used a few minutes to figure out that. You can not buy tickets on the train, you have to buy them on the tickets machine before you are taking the train.

A very good way to get to the airport nowadays. The ride takes a little bit over half an hour and you only pay the public transport fee. The ride ends right between the two terminals of the Helsinki Airport.

Spacious modern trains travel frequently from early morning till past midnight from Helsinki Main railway station to the airport. The P-line goes via Tikkurila where you can exchange to long distance trains, the travel time both ways is about half an hour. You need to purchase a ticket for three zones A-C from the automats before boarding. It is also possible to buy a combined ticket for the whole stay in Helsinki.

I had a long wait in Helsinki-Vantaa Airport till my next flight, so using the Ring Rail Line to get to downtown Helsinki turned out to be the right move. And great idea.

The Ring Rail Line (trains marked either 'I' or 'P') goes to the center of Helsinki, and you won't miss the downtown stop in Helsinki, since it is the final stop of the train. The ticket cost is about 7 Euros for a one-way transfer, you can buy return tickets either at the Airport (there are some excellent Travel Agencies there) or from the machine on the platform. The train goes from the Airport Terminal (Level LL), it is very comfortable, with displays of the stops (in Finnish). Seating is comfortable too, the route is pretty scenic - you can see forests, living areas of Helsinki suburbs, some cool street art at the train stops, etc. The compartment is very-well designed, it is very modern and light.

I really enjoyed using this convenient transportation from the airport to Helsinki, spent there several hours in the downtown area, and then came back to the airport.

Very efficient way of transfer! Ring Rail Line is excellent.

We used our Helsinki card to take the train to and from the airport. It was easy to follow the signs in the airport to the train platforms. We were a bit unsure we were taking the correct train but there was an employee on the platform to reassure us. You can purchase your ticket from a machine on the platform, and then scan your ticket or Helsinki card on the train. The ride was quite comfortable and there was ample room to stow our luggage on the floor. Our hotel near the main tourist area (market square) was only a 10 to 15 minute walk. Far cheaper than hiring a taxi, and I believe it was a much better choice than taking a bus. We took the train on our return to the airport as well, and would do so again if we come back to Helsinki.

It was the smoothest way ever to get to Helsinki airport all the way from Tampere through Tikkurila where we changed the train to get right to the airport in maybe 15 minutes. Just great!

Very easy to travel in Finland with the HSL transport. We used this from Helsinki to the zoo and from Helsinki to the airport. Very easy and cheap with the app.

the metro line to the city from the airport is a loop - so you can take the train in either direction and get to the main station in around 30 mins. One small problem was that the ticket machines on the platform were few, with long queues.
