New Flirt commuter trains

Pääkaupunkiseudun Junakalusto Oy has ordered a total of 32 low-floor electrical multiple units (EMU) from Swiss Stadler Bussnang AG. The new trains will partly replace old rolling stock in commuter services. More trains will be needed as the ring rail line is constructed and a new connection is established between Helsinki centre and Helsinki-Vantaa airport.

The new commuter train is easily accessible also to persons with reduced mobility and passengers with prams since it has a mainly low-floor setup and there are no interior doors to hinder movement. The trains have air conditioning and have information displays to provide information to e.g. passengers travelling to the airport.

The brand name Flirt is an acronym for Fast Light Innovative Regional Train.
