How does AirportTaxi differ from a meter taxi?
It is a shuttle, a shared taxi, under brand Airport Taxi Yellow Line and has got seats for up to 10 passengers. It has got fixed prices according to size of group and address. It picks you up when agreed and takes you to the airport much cheaper than a meter taxi. There can be other passengers in the same taxi. Service is available from and to Helsinki Airport.
When I was picked up there were three other passengers in the car. Everyone paid a single price. Is it correct? Yes. The prices are according to address and a group size.
In the car there was an other passenger who had been picked up before me. My shared price was higher than the price the other passenger paid. Is this correct?
Yes. It is correct. The other passenger`s pick up address is situated in the area where there is a lower tariff. Tariffes do not automatically match how far the address is from the airport. Sometimes a pick up from an area with higher tariff can have less kilometres to the airport than a lower tariff address.

No, you pay according the area tariff for one person.
