The Ring Rail Line that opened in 2015 links the various areas in Vantaa, the airport and central Helsinki with each other.

Business facilities and sites are located within reach of good traffic connections, in the vicinity of the major highways and within reach of public transport. The Aviapolis major area has been the most appealing business-facility area in the entire capital region for the past decade. During this time, more than 90 000 kem of business facilities have been built. Only the Helsinki Southern Major District comes close to this. Vantaa offers exceptionally lots of space for new construction. The city plan enables the construction of more than an additional 5 million floor square metres of business facilities, half of which will be located in the emerging Ring Rail Line station areas.
