Helsinki-Vantaa Airport – experience with aircraft heaters since 1985

“Aircraft heaters manufactured by Polartherm have been used at Helsinki Vantaa Airport since 1985”, says Mr. Mauri Huttunen, ground handling manager at Helsinki Vantaa Airport. “In addition to use in Finland, we use Polartherm Heaters at airports in Sweden and Norway where they are also approved by the airport authorities.”

“The latest aircraft heater in our fleet is the GSH-W20 model which we use for wide body aircraft. The model which we have the greatest number of are the 120 HD, which are easily maneuvered on the airport aprons. The original Polartherm heaters in our fleet – still in use – were manufactured in the late 1980s. I can sincerely recommend Polartherm aircraft heaters to anyone.”
