Helsinki FIR

Finnish Airspace consist of Helsinki Flight Information Region (FIR), which covers the territory of Finland and some parts of the Baltic Sea.

Area control service within Helsinki FIR (EFIN) is provided by Helsinki ACC (EFIN). Free Route Airspace (called NEFAB FRA) extends from FL95 to FL660.

Finland is known for its gateway from/to Asia and therefore most of the transit traffic crosses from South West to East and vise versa.

Most traffic arriving to or departing from Finland does so via the main international airport, Helsinki-Vantaa (EFHK), which is the biggest airport in Finland.

Details about area control units, Helsinki-Vantaa airport, AFIS operations and other local procedures are located in the menu to the left.
