International accessibility

Helsinki is a dynamic hub for international business at the geographical and cultural crossroads between East and West. Finland has a long history of doing business in the Baltic States and Russia. Helsinki is also quickly becoming an important business hub between Europe and Asia due to fast and convenient flights and Helsinki’s award-winning airport. The city is only a flight away from St. Petersburg: 1h 5min, Beijing: 7h 40 min, Mumbai: 7h 25min, London: 3h 10 min, New York: 8h 40 min.
