||Some things to consider.
- Arriving at the airport, bus 615/615T/615N will take you to the city
centre for 4 €. You can use the same ticket for travel with all
public transportation in the Helsinki region. (Within Helsinki, a
ticket costs 2.50 €.)
the time table found here, "Lentoasema" means "Airport" while
"Rautatieasema" equals "Central railway station".

The Journey Planner and Google Maps might be helpful.
- Look at the
latest weather reports before travelling as temperatures might drop down to
-15 degrees for the Winter School week.
