Airport Groceries: It’s a Thing

Helsinki Airport first in the Nordic countries: Pick up your groceries at the airport

Passengers will soon be able to order their groceries to be delivered to the arrivals hall at Helsinki Airport when Alepa’s Kauppakassi service comes to the airport on September 15. Kauppakassi allows you take your groceries home with you straight from the airport after your flight, totally negating the “OMG I don’t have any milk” stress upon landing. Finavia is in the process of renewing the services at the airport. This year and next year will see approximately 70 new or renovated service points.

Kauppakassi is Finland’s largest and most well-known online grocery store. Customers select the products they want from the online store and the pick-up time. When the products have been collected and taken to a locker at the pick-up point, the customer will receive a text message containing a code which will open the locker. Pick-up is available almost 24/7 and at best the products can be picked three hours after the order was placed, which is more or less amazing, considering grocery pickup is still a major rarity at airports.

As an introductory offer, the service will be free of charge through September, and then will be raised to 5 Euros and available 24/7.
