Go home at Helsinki’s airport
Helsinki Vantaa Airport)
Even an airline geek like me wouldn’t call an airport “homey.”
“Exciting” is a word that I would use and I may even say “comfortable” depending on the airport, but I won’t deny that an airport is the opposite of home. Either you’re on way to somewhere else or you still have a flight between you and your own bed.
Check in at Helsinki’s airport, though, and you’ll find a new lounge that is trying to bridge that gap. Now open in Vantaa Airport’s Terminal 2, the Almost@home Lounge goes beyond far beyond the utilitarian furniture and simple snacks that you’d find in a standard airline lounge in the United States.
Instead, there’s everything passengers would need to complete a modern home including a kitchen, dining room, children’s playroom, media lounge, and a home office with HP computers. And as you’d expect in Finland, there’s lots of wood, sleek design, and Eco-friendly features.
