This is my flight report from Helsinki to Lisbon with TAP Portugal in Business Class after my weekend trip to the city. You can check my Helsinki trip report here. The flight duration was 4h25 and I arrived on time
I arrived in Helsinki Airport Terminal 1 one hour before the departure via my hotel transfer. I quickly entered in the terminal to avoid the very cold weather that morning. I checked-in in 114 with no queues.
Helsinki Airport have 2 Terminals connected internally: The 1, older and smaller, which is operated only for Schengen Flights for Star Alliance Airlines (Except Turkish Airlines), Vueling and airBaltic. The terminal where I departed was the 1. At that time almost all the stores were closed and the small terminal was very quiet.
I boarded at gate 17, almost half an hour after the scheduled time
I was seated in 2F and I had that seat row just for me. After the breakfast I slept for the entire flight. Check my departure video:
As breakfast TAP offered me a pancakes with eggs and potatoes, fruit, yogurt with cereals and a sort of warm bread. It was a very nice and tasty breakfast
I woke up when the plane started to descent. Was amazing to see the sun rising in that beautiful and cold morning from the sky. I landed on time and the aircraft stopped in a remote park. Then I took the airport bus to get to the terminal.
The bus arrival point is almost in the end of the terminal so I passed for the food court and all the duty free stores. I picked my bag 30 minutes after the landing time.
Another medium-haul flight in Business Class with TAP with the excellent level of service for nowadays. The Helsinki Airport Terminal 1 was very dated and the Lisbon needs urgently an upgrade: They must build a satellite terminal with air-bridges.
