Cost of flying to Helsinki from London

Looking online at the fares charged by our illustrious BA, I see that most European destinations can be reached from Heathrow for under 40 (each way)..... apart from Helsinki where it's typically closer to 240.
Even trying price comparison sites for air travel, the cost is significantly greater with other airlines than almost anywhere else in Europe.

Is there a logical explanation for this apparent anomaly?

Perhaps linked into the cost of living in Finland and the relatively small number of operators serving Helsinki ?

As always, "Whatever the market will bear" which is how many US companies sell goods in the UK, simply swapping out the $ sign for a . If people then buy - that is the price.

I don't think BA are actually flying to Helsinki at the moment.
They will be selling codeshare prices on Finnair.
