U.K.-based car rental company Green Motion has continued its European expansion into Finland by opening a location near Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport.

The location opened near Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport on July 20. Green Motion Helsinki will operate its eco-friendly fleet from the Cumulus Airport Hotel, about two minutes from the airport terminals, according to the company.

Green Motion’s Finland franchise will be run by Petri Vanhanen and Outi Takala.

"This is another exciting development in the rapid expansion of the Green Motion brand throughout Europe,” said Richard Lowden, founder and chairman of Green Motion. “Petri and Outi have already demonstrated their outstanding commitment to delivering an unsurpassed level of customer service and are 110% behind Green Motion environmental ethos. I have no doubt that this business will be another Green Motion success story."

The Finland franchise will open its second location soon at Tampere-Pirkkala International Airport.
