Security guards are planning to go on strike at Helsinki Airport (HEL) and at train stations across Finland from Wednesday, October 24, through Friday, October 26, to demand increased wages and better working conditions. Though some railway stations are expected to close or have modified opening hours during the strike, the stations will remain accessible and trains will continue to run, according to the state-owned railway; nevertheless, transportation disruptions, including flight and train delays and cancelations, are to be anticipated during the strike period. Crowded conditions are to be expected at the security checkpoint in HEL's Terminal 1.
Individuals traveling by rail in Finland or to, from, or via HEL over the coming days are advised to monitor developments to the situation, allow extra time to go through security checkpoints, prepare for transportation delays, and confirm travel reservations.
