Read how the presidential summit will affect from 15 to 17 July in Helsinki

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, and the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, are meeting in Finland on 16 July. The summit will affect Helsinki Airport’s operations through high-level security measures and other special arrangements. Measures will be taken to ensure that the summit causes as little disturbance to other air traffic as possible.

The special arrangements at the airport and its surroundings will be organized as a cooperative effort by multiple parties. These arrangements will ensure that the requirements set by the delegations of both countries are met, and that all other air traffic can operate normally.

The summit is expected to draw a lot of attention on a global scale. Finavia’s aim is for the airport to offer first-class service to all visitors and to promote a positive image of Finland.

Possibility for plane spotting and photographing will have to be reduced during the summit. Read further information here.

It seems possible that the border checks at Finnish internal borders will be reinstated. See The Finnish Border Guard’s release on what this would mean to passengers.

There will be restrictions to aviation, including drone flying, in Helsinki and surrounding areas during this time. Read more from Trafi’s release .

This press release will be updated with new information about any special arrangements.
