Last Update: June 29, 2017 / 15:13:01 GMT/Zulu time
A Scandinavian Airlines Canadair CRJ-900, registration OY-KFB performing flight SK-1706 from Copenhagen (Denmark) to Helsinki (Finland), was on short final to Helsinki's runway 22L descending through about 800 feet MSL when the crew of the A321 was nearing the hold short line of runway 22L, noticed the arriving traffic and stopped advising ATC that they would not cross until the aircraft had landed.
The A321 continued taxi across the runway after the CRJ had safely landed and departed from runway 22R a few minutes later.
Finland's Onnettomuustutkintakeskus (Accident Investigation Board) rated the occurrence a serious incident and opened an investigation.
On Jun 29th 2017 the AIB released their final report in Finnish into another occurrence stating, that two aircraft were approaching holding point ZD (hold short of runway 22L on taxiway D), the first aircraft was cleared to cross runway 22L past the landing traffic (SK-1706). The investigation into this occurrence was discontinued, the sequence of events however was included into the final report of the second occurrence, see Incident: Finnair A319 at Helsinki on Oct 28th 2016, crew corrects ATC mistake.
