Quickest would be a taxi. However there's no need to rush. Take tram 2 to the Railway Station and bus 615 to the Airport. Takes ~1 hour..

Thankyou Polarbear however are the tram & bus easy to find ? Please excuse me as I have never travelled before & I only speak English also so am concerned about making myself understood.I also have some more questions but unsure if I should start new topics-can you also advise on this please ? Thankyou again for you help & patience.

The tram leaves right outside the terminal, The railway station is easily recognizable from the pictures, the buses (615 is part of the public transportation, The Finnair Bus is a tad more expensive and quicker - no big difference) are clean and safe.

In general, Helsinki is really safe place to visit (avoid the beggars and so on, like anywhere else) and most of the young people speak English very well. Just ask if you need any help.

There's a reasonably good municipal web page on transportation; https://www.hsl.fi/en. It has a journey planner e.g. for travelling from Olympiaterminaali to the Airport. Adult single fare for regional transport is 5 € (kids 7-16 half fare) that ticket is valid on the tram and the 615 (or 620) airport bus. Tram stop in the harbour cannot be missed, the bus to the airport leaves from platform 3 right next to the railway station.

For other questions I'd suggest to open new topics.
