Having opened a number of new units across Helsinki Airport in 2023, SSP Group has released more details of the concepts on offer.

As part of Finnish airport company Finavia’s ‘one roof’ re-development programme at Helsinki Airport – which began in 2014 – SSP has opened its largest ever food court in Finland.

Centrally located, the food court was designed to complement the architectural theme of the terminal and offers a broad selection of concepts, chosen to appeal to the international traveller. Of the six units, three are bespoke brands, created by SSP Finland. They include Café Tori, a brand which has been a favourite at the airport since 2011. It is open 24 hours a day, offering a menu that includes a selection of Finnish traditional home-cooked food, fresh pastries, and healthy options.

Asian Corner brings the experience of the best food stalls in Asia to the terminal. The menu is full of flavours from across the continent, and is changed regularly to reflect tastes and trends. In Pala Pizza Bar, dough is rested for 48 hours and baked with fresh toppings, and pizzas are served from a service counter, giving even the busiest travellers time to enjoy their meals.

The Food Court also features three established international concepts. Bastard Burgers serves classic New York-style burgers with a Scandinavian touch. Middle Eastern-style Finnish favourite Fafa’s offers filled pitas, mezes and salads with vegetarian and vegan options. For guests seeking a caffeine fix, there is iconic Finnish chain Robert’s Coffee.

Guests at the Food Court can make their selections via a self-ordering kiosk, which allows quick and easy ordering and payment. In Tori Café & Kitchen, customers can use self-checkout tills to pay quickly without having to queue.

“We are positive our passengers will enjoy the new restaurants in the food court at the heart of our airport. The variety of restaurants significantly increases the supply of hot food options and take-away products at Helsinki Airport,” said Nora Immonen, Finavia’s director of commercial business at Helsinki Airport.
