For local travel in Helsinki (including travel from and to the airport by train) we recommend that you use the public transport HSL. For the airport, you will need an HSL zone ABC ticket, while for downtown public transport (including the ferry ride to Suomenlinna to the conference dinner on Thursday June 6) an HSL zone AB ticket will be sufficient. You can buy HSL tickets from e.g. R-kiosks or (conveniently) from the HSL app. See for more information.
