Easy travelling from you local airport

In 2017, a total of 119,714 passengers used Finavia’s Joensuu Airport. The airport serves both business and leisure travellers. Five flights depart to Helsinki from Joensuu on weekdays, and three flights on both days of the weekend.

“Direct holiday flights in the autumn and in the spring to Mediterranean countries, for example, have been very popular. It is easy to depart from our own home airport”, says Director of airport, Auli Koistinen of Finavia. 

The terminal facilities at Joensuu Airport were renovated in 2015. 

“It is important to us that customers enjoy their time at our airport and feel themselves welcome to Northern Karelia. We also want to create a warm and unreserved atmosphere. All this we can do with the introduction of new cooperation”, says Koistinen.
