Take bus 615 from Helsinki airport to city with big luggages

We family is going to visit Helsinki in next week. Browsing the forum, I find many persons recommended bus 615 for transportion between airport and city. Since we big family gourp (5 persons) has several big luggages, is it suitable to take the bus? Is there enough place to accomodate our luggages on bus?

Does the 615 stop at the flamingo spa ? How long is it from the spa to the town centre? Also we would like to see a Christmas market, can you provide directions from the spa

Caz, the 615 does not drive past Flamingo. From the spa to centre count 1 hour + 5 months, since the Christmas market is there only in December... Maybe you could give us a hint of your travelling date?

MrsHelsinki is correct on that that the bus 615 does not stop right in front of the door of Flamingo, but it has a stop not too far away from it next to the group of airport hotels. The stop is called Vantaanportti and near it there is an underpass through which you can get to the other side of the Ring III road. If you're going to Flamingo from the airport, take bus 61. It will stop right next to the Flamingo hotel and spa complex (stop is called Valuuttapolku). From Flamingo to the airport the bus 61 will stop next to the Jumbo shopping mall (stop is called Jumbo). There's an indoor access between Flamingo and Jumbo, too.

The St Thomas Christmas Market has opened Dec 7th in recent years. Before that look for handicrafts the Hakaniemi market hall, 2nd floor and the Bock house next to the Senate square. For food, the market halls.

To simplify "Helsingin sisäiset matkat" one can say that only travel to/from airport.

Not from Rautatientori to Hakaniemi or from Hakamniemi to Rautatientori. But OK from Hakaniemi to Airport.
