Security check

At the airport you will have to go through security control before you can proceed to the gate area. You will be required to place items such as overcoats and laptop computers onto a conveyor belt for X-ray scanning. Small items, such as watches and coins, should be placed in your carry-on bag or jacket pocket.

You will also need to go through security control if you are transferring to a connecting flight to a non-Schengen country.

Priority Security

You can find a convenient Priority Security lane through security check at many airports.

Please show your boarding pass when entering the Priority Security, as your boarding pass includes all necessary information about your eligibility to use the Priority Security. You can use a mobile boarding pass, a home-printed boarding pass or a boarding pass from the check-in kiosks or desks.

When you start your journey at Helsinki Airport, you are allowed to use the Priority Security lane if

  • you have bought a Finnair Business, Business Saver or Pro ticket OR
  • you are a Finnair Plus Platinum, Gold or Silver member and you’re travelling on a Finnair marketed flight (the flight number on your ticket begins with an AY-code).

At Helsinki Airport, Finnair Plus Platinum and Gold members can also bring children under 18 years of age and a guest through the Priority Security Lane, provided that they all are travelling on a Finnair marketed flight.

When departing from any other airport, you are allowed to use the Priority Security lane if

  • you are flying on a Finnair operated flight and
  • you have bought a Finnair Business, Business Saver or Pro ticket OR
  • you are a Finnair Plus Platinum, Gold or Silver member and you’re travelling on a Finnair marketed flight (the flight number on your ticket begins with an AY-code).
