There are quite a few airport lounges at Helsinki International Airport. I will be reviewing four different lounges that I visited in this subseries of lounge reviews. I will start off with the ASPIRE Lounge where it was located in the Schengen area of the terminal.

I had access to the ASPIRE Lounge via Priority Pass Select which was complimentary with my American Express Platinum card.
It was early in the morning, so there was hardly anyone around in the lounge. In fact there were only 3 other people in the lounge, so there was plenty of open seating.
My favorite part about the lounge was the cool swinging pods. I had never seen that before in any lounge that I visited. I thought it was awesome and definitely reflects the Finnish design culture.
There was also a small business center with plenty of iMac Apple computers for use.
The breakfast spread consisted of whole fruit, yogurt, croissants, and karelian pies.
Juices were available as well as cold alcoholic and non-alcoholics from the fridge.
I had a little bit of everything, but my favorite was the karelian pie with delicious egg butter.
