Trade union members will implement an extensive work stoppage on Friday, 18 September. The strike will also affect flights.

Air traffic stoppages on 18 September

Cabin crew members of the Finnish Cabin Crew Union have announced that they will be on strike for two hours from 11am to 1pm. This mainly applies to Finnair flights.

Air traffic controllers (Finnish Air Traffic Controllers' Association) have also announced that they will join the protest for two hours from 11am to 1pm. However, Finavia's goal is to do everything it can to ensure that air traffic will be as smooth as possible during the stoppage. Supervisors will take care of air navigation services during the stoppage.

Ground handling personnel (Finnish Aviation Union) have announced that they will be on strike from 11am to 1pm. Ground handling will be taken care as smooth as possible during the stoppage.

In any case, we ask passengers to at least prepare for delays and to monitor communication by their respective airline or travel agent.

You can also monitor your flight status at Finavia's online service (airport websites) on the "I'm departing", "I'm arriving" and the "I'm dropping off / picking up" pages.

Services at airports on 18 September

Some staff members of airport service outlets may join the protest, which means that some cafés and shops may have to be closed or be subjected to shorter opening hours.

We will monitor the situation and communicate more as the situation unfolds.
