    I dont know the minimum connection time at HEL but I'd expect it to be significantly less than 1 hour. HEL is a small hub, and if MUC, FRA, ZRH, etc can manage minimum connection times of 20 minutes (MUC) to 45 minutes (FRA) then HEL should manage 1 hour easily.

  4. Hi there

    I flew AY fom LHR to SIN via HEL in june and originally my connection was 35 mins which i think maybe the MCT at HEL, but as i wanted to sample the AY lounge offering's ( not great, but you can smoke in them) and also step outside for some fresh air i got it changed to a 2h30 connection.

    Enjoy your flight on AY
