Helsingin Ympäristön Ammattiautoilijat ry (Helsinki Environmental Professional Drivers)
An association of professional drivers was established. During the first year of the operation, 17 paid members were involved. The association was a “mixed association” consisting of taxi drivers and lorry drivers.
New Helsinki Airport (Helsinki Airport)
Helsinki Airport temporarily started operations for the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki. The scheduled traffic of the games was directed to an unfinished airport while Aero, the predecessor of Finnair, was operating at Malmi Airport. The opening of the new airport took place on 10 July 1952. Taxi traffic was handled by Helsingin Maalaiskunnan taksit (Helsinki Rural Municipality Taxis).
Helsingin Maalaiskunnan Taksiautoilijat ry (Taxi Drivers Association of the Rural Municipality of Helsinki)
The taxi drivers wanted to join the Finnish Taxi Union and thus decided to set up their own association. This led to the dissolution of the “mixed association”. The funds were allocated according to a proposal from a “Sharing Commission”.
