For many people, travelling by air can be stressful and exhausting. Between rushing to catch your flight and the long hours in the air, it’s no surprise that many travellers crave a moment of peace and relaxation before their journey begins. Luckily, Finnair Business Lounge in Helsinki-Vantaa airport has got you covered. Designed with the aim of providing a comfortable and luxurious space for passengers, this lounge is the ultimate airport experience.
It is designed to provide its passengers with a comfortable place to relax and enjoy their time before the flight. You will find Finnair Business Lounge at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport in Finland, offering a range of premium services to its customers. This lounge is aimed at providing a relaxing environment where travellers can unwind peacefully before or in-between their flights.
Travelers to the Non-Schengen area or the Schengen area have their own lounges at the Finavia airport. During my recent trip to India, I had the opportunity to test out the Business Lounge of the Non-Schengen area, and it was an experience I won’t forget anytime soon.
See below my short video from the Finnair’s Business Lounge –
As soon as you enter the Finnair Business Lounge, you’re transported to a world of calm and tranquillity. The lounge boasts a stylish and modern design, with comfortable seating and an inviting atmosphere that immediately puts you at ease. Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, you’ll find that the lounge is the perfect place to relax before your flight.
What is the food like in Finnair Business Lounge?
One of the first things that caught my attention was the food. The Finnair Business Lounge offers a range of delicious meals, drinks and desserts to its customers. As a vegetarian, I was delighted to find that the vegetarian option was not only filling but also incredibly tasty. For those who prefer meat, the chicken dish was also there. Additionally, the lounge offers raw cakes and gluten-free bread upon request, which is a testament to their excellent customer service. Watch my YouTube shorts video about the food they served in their buffet table.
What is the prize of the Finnair Business Lounge?
After indulging in a delicious meal, I decided to take advantage of the lounge’s other amenities. Finnair’s Business Lounge offers shower facilities for those who need to freshen up before their flight. Unfortunately, I did not test out this feature, but the locked doors provided privacy and security to those who did. The lounge also has a drink bar, where non-alcoholic drinks can be made to order, and the inviting lighting there makes it for a cozy atmosphere.
While the lounge provides a peaceful environment for undisturbed work or relaxation, I did miss the hustle and bustle of the airport. The lounge I visited had no windows or natural light, which made it difficult to gauge the time of day. However, the lounge’s inviting atmosphere more than made up for it. The lounge provides charging stations for electronics, so passengers can stay connected to their devices while they wait for their flight. Additionally, free Wi-Fi is available for those who need it.
The price of the entire Business Lounge experience was approximately 55 euros. Although this may seem like a steep price, the lounge’s amenities and services make it worth the investment. The lounge offers a comfortable and peaceful environment for passengers to unwind and relax before their flight, and in addition to the shower facility, the delicious food and drink options are a nice bonus.
Interestingly enough, next time I travel to a Non-Schengen area, I might not choose the Business Lounge. Because even though the space was peaceful and offered a great opportunity for almost undisturbed working, I still missed the Finavia airport’s large windows, bright spaces and those departing and arriving planes on the runway. And maybe a little bit of the hustle and bustle of the airport and all those travelers from around the world as well. In the Business Lounge where I was, there were no windows to outside, or at least the curtains weren’t open, so the smartphone was the only option for time pass.
Luckily, on the smartphone you can read and watch e.g. my visual guide Trip to India!
