The Ring Rail Line railway link to the airport opened for traffic in July 2015. The
new railway serves local commuter trains running at 10-minute intervals at peak periods,
although capacity problems have prevented dedicated airport express style trains.
The westbound commuter line "I" runs to Helsinki Central station via Huopalahti,
while the eastbound commuter line "P" runs to Helsinki Central station via Tikkurila.
The trip from the airport underground station to Helsinki Central station takes about
30 minutes and costs 5,50 euros. Eastbound trains stop at Tikkurila (8 minutes away)
where passengers can transfer to trains going away from Helsinki, in the directions
of Tampere. Hämeenlinna is just 45 min train drive from Tikkurila.
Taxi ranks are located outside Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
There is regular bus service provided by the bus line 615 from the airport to the
Helsinki Central railway station in 30-55 minutes, and major hotels and railway stations
in the Greater Helsinki Area in 15-120 minutes. The chief operator of these services
is the Helsinki Regional Transport Authority. A direct coach service by Finnair is
also available to and from the city center (usually about 30 min). On 1 June 2016,
the new bus terminal opened. It is located between Terminal 2 and Hilton-hotel.
Coach connections, daytime and overnight, to all parts of Finland including to Hämeenlinna
are provided by Matkahuolto and ExpressBus. They depart from the airport coach terminal.
