Helsinki - Finnland (29.09-01.10.2005) / Helsinki - Finland (09/29 - 10/01/2005)


We made a trip to Helsinki from September 29 to October 1, 2005. After an comfortably Check-In at Austrian Premium
Check-In counter, we walked to Austrian Senator Lounge at the C-gates.

We boarded an Austrian Airbus A321-211 (OE-LBF) through gate C58. We were taxiing twoards runway 29 exactly at
06:50am. Takeoff was from runway 29 in western direction. After we passed the cities of Linz and Salzburg we started our
approach to runway 26L at Munich.

We continued our trip to Helsinki onboard LH 3103 (Airbus A319-114 D-AILE) after
1 hour. Takeoff was at runway 26R and after a right turn we had an beautiful view over
Munich airport before we reached the clouds.

The route was from Munich over Berlin and Tallinn to Helsinki, were we started our final approach to runway 15.

After leaving the aircraft, I made some pictures of the parked planes at the gates.

The next 2 days we visited the city of Helsinki which is really a nice place to stay.
The weather was also very good.

On Saturday the 1th of October we went to the airport in the afternoon, where we checked in
at SAS Star Alliance Gold counter. At the SAS business lounge we had a good view to the apron.
Fortunately, some widebodies arrived at Helsinki like MD-11 and An-124.

At 07:00pm we started at runway 22R back to Frankfurt as Lufthansa 3103 onboard an Airbus A319-114 (D-AILS).

After an 2 hour flight we landed at Frankfurt airport on runway 25R in very bad weather conditions.
Our conecting time was about 1,5 hours before we made our final flight to Vienna as Lufthansa 3542
onboard an Airbus A320-214 D-AIPA.

At 11:00pm local time our trip to Helsinki was finished with the landing at runway 29 in Vienna.
